Harry, I was on a high dose of Prednisone for about 18 months. I did experience a number of side affects, but none that you mention. I have not heard about anyone’s speech being affected by taking corticosteroids. Maybe you have a cold coming on that is starting to affect your throat?

Numbness and tingling are very rare side affects of Prednisone. If you suspect this is Prednisone related, you should see your doctor right away.

I think must of us probably over did it during Thanksgiving and need a little extra rest to help us get back to normal. Here’s hoping that is your case.
