Intravenous Steroids CAUSING bladder problems?

Seems as though every time I get infused with methylprednisone (recently had 3 day course), or when I was getting cytoxan + methylprednisone, a day or two after the infusions I experience absolutely horrible bladder problems, to the point of straight up incontinence (or having to use bathroom every 5-10 minutes). Has anyone else experienced this? Any suggestions? Haven't had any luck researching it online. Thanks.

Thyroid veins

Dr Zamboni's new paper talks about the collateral circulation and how that impacts CCSVi. he mentions in the abstract that the THYROID VEINS are impacted too.

I wanted to mention something about this. Recently in another thread another TIMSer mentioned that he felt the proof that MS was autoimmune was that we have other autoimmune diseases more often than others do asserting that these co autoimmunities are endorsing the notion that they are therefore both ...

First off--I was only recently diagnosed (I'm 45) incidental to another health problem that has since resolved. But while they were scanning me for that, somebody noticed a few ...
