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?
Diagnosed with Moderate-Severe Crohn's Disease September, 15th, 2010 by Colonoscopy.
Done Prednisone, done Entocort for a second time.
10mg. Reactine daily.
Gave up on Imuran, did not work.
Remicade every 6 weeks.

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).
Dx: Moderate Crohn's in 3 locations
Doctor's orders: 200 mg Imuran
Have used: 4500 mg Pentasa, 4500 mg Salofalk, Flagyl, Cipro, 50 mg Prednisone, 9 mg Entocort.
Turned my Crohn's life around: ginger for nausea.

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.

Currently in: REMISSION Thought it was a flare but it's just scar tissue from my resection. Dealing with a stricture. Remission from my resection, 19 years and counting.
