Thanks for your question
Were you have sinusitis for which the spray was given?
No I had problems with fluid in ears.
any diagnosed medical condition
Diagnosed as fluid on inside of eardrums.
Which investigations done so far and which specialist you have visited so far
please stay in the chat
None. Can't stay too much longer.
The symptoms you are experiencing have nothing to do with the spray
The metallic taste in your mouth can be a part of sinus inflammation which at the same time can be a part of the disease responsible for the ear fluid
I myself is ENT doctor and give these sprays to pt but no side effect like that they develop
The other symptoms you are having are not related to arsenic, they seems to be part of multisystemic problems.
Could you also indicate the time these effects may remain after steroid use?
Ears have cleared up. But these after effects persist. Should I continue spray abnd for how long?
You need to visit your doctor for detailed examination and investigations like complete blood work up and other investigations as per his suspision.
Do you have any fluid trickling in throat, throat irritation etc
Then you can stop the spray.
Please click ACCEPT if you agree
If you want to ask more please feel free
What would you like for me to accept? I have not really received any info that I already had and, in fact know, that this specific steroid can have similar after effects. I was looking for a treatment recommendation to alleviate these after effects. ??
i will opt out so that some other expert might help you.
get well soon
Hello, I am baffled as to why you would think you'd get arsenic poisoning from a corticosteroid spray, or why you would think something you sprayed in your nose would cause foot pain. Fluticasone propionate has an elimination half life of 7.8 hours. That is the length of time it takes for half of the dosage of the drug to be completely out of the body. It takes about 6-7 half-lives for all of it to be out of the body after the final dose is taken. That would be 47-55 hours (about 2-3 days at the maximum) for all of it to be gone from your body after you stopped taking it. Naturally if you are no longer taking it, you can't be having any side effects from it.
Foot pain, swelling and neuropathy need to be evaluated to determine what is causing them. Edema in the ankles and feet can come from injury, inflammation, infection, blood clots, kidney disease, heart disease including heart failure, and a number of other things that should be checked for immediately. Your primary physician would be the place to start determining what is causing your symptoms.
