Popliteal swelling: While this might be something relatively benign, like a bakers cyst, it could also be something serious like a blood clot. I am not sure of the relation of the popliteal swelling to the dizziness and fatigue. Please go to your nearest ER or at least Urgent Care for this constellation of symptoms if you cannot see your regular doctor today. ...Read more

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own.

I have multiple unexplained bruising on my hip and leg (one side) as well as leg aches and fatigue, on prednisone 20mg a day for a week, is it linked?

I have multiple unexplained bruising on my hip and leg (one side) as well as leg aches and fatigue, on prednisone 20mg a day for a week, is it linked?

Probably related: Prednisone makes the skin and blood vessels fragile, so much more prone to easy bruising with normal daily activity, for example if you sleep on the side where the bruising is. Muscle aches and fatigue can also be related either to the Prednisone itself, or to whatever condition the Prednisone is being used to treat. If the leg is also swollen, see your doctor to be sure it's not a blood clot. ...Read more

CFS hard to treat: CFS is not well understood, but symptoms do occur suddenly or fluctuate. To fit criteria for CFS symptoms have to be ongoing for 6 mos and have features like memory/focus problems, unrefreshing sleep, sore lymph nodes. Steroids like pred help some, but these drugs can have bad long term effects. There is not a proven treatment or cure. Make sure your doc has ruled out other causes of weakness. ...Read more
