Strange Prednisone Symptoms????

Has anyone ever had any ringing in the ears when taking Prednisone? I'm assuming that's what it's from becasue it only just started when I started the Prednisone. It's worse that higher the dose is. I also get a numb face about an hour after I take it for about an hour. Anyone else get these or any other strange symptoms?

Yes to the numb face. My arms and legs were numb and tingling full-time for the duration of my time on Pred, but the numb face was only for a short while. It got me sent to Emerg on orders from the nursing line, though (she figured I was having a stroke).

Could be swelling causing these symptoms. Its been a LONG time since I've had to take it but I know the swelling from it causes all sorts of issues.
