I was prescribed Prednisone for a respiratory issue (two 20mg tablets 1x a day for 3 days). Since starting the Rx, I have experienced painful/burning urination, urine leaks when coughing, lower ab pain & night sweats. Could this be a UTI from the Rx?

Not from Prednisone: Steroids may have other side effects including insomnia, mania, weight gain, increased hunger. Prednisones will not cause a urinary tract infection, however you should get those checked out promptly. Simple infections can be easy to treat with an oral antibiotic for a couple of days as opposed to waiting longer or for symptoms to worsen and developing a more severe infection. ...Read more

What can cause really bad night sweats?

Hormone imbalance: Night sweats: there are many potential causes to sweating at night. The term night sweats generally refers to excessive sweating at night related to a hormone imbalance.

There is no one answer to explain the origin of sweating at night. Some common causes are: infection, some cancers, several medications, low blood sugars and a host of other less common reasons.

Were going to focus in on the hormone imbalance commonly seen in menopause, although by no means limited to menopause. We have seen a common night sweats picture in the men with prostate cancer with elevated estrogen levels. Swelling often starts around your neck

We generally start with saliva testing which allows us to identify what the hormone imbalance actually is and treat accordingly. When we don't start with saliva testing we very often get very good success with progesterone cream in the form of wild yam cream. There are many different preparations of wild yam cream on the market and often the preparation does not have enough progesterone cream to be effective.

The above is the simple answer the better answer is to work with a healthcare professional who has experiencing natural hormone therapy.
