Thanks for asking a question. I'm Dr Chaithanya, General Physician trying to help you today.

Can you tell me how long back this happened, that high dose of steroids were given to you? How long did the treatment go? When is it stopped? From when did the present symptoms begin? Did you have a symptom-free period in between? Do you have associated health conditions? What drugs are you taking presently?

The information you provide helps me to decide on further treatment/diagnostic plan.
