Has anyone ever heard of steroids causing a drastic drop in potassium levels? I don’t understand how, or why, but it seems every time I use a steroid now, even one shot, by the next day it has induced extreme weakness in my arms, legs, or both. At the worst it caused paralysis of all 4 limbs. Not an exaggeration. It seems the effect is more drastic in localized areas, meaning if I do a deltoid shot, the weakness occurs most noticeably in my arms. If I do a glute or quad shot, it’s most noticeable in my legs, making it extremely difficult to stand and walk. Sometimes my knees buckle, and I fall. I’m only in my mid 20s.. The only abnormalities in my bloodwork are extremely low potassium (hypokalemia) and elevated CPK. Can any of you provide some insight on why this is happening? Why steroids would cause the sudden drop in potassium? And to you guys that are going to say “no way my beloved steroid could ever cause such a thing!” I didn’t want to believe it either. I’ve tested the theory many times now, and every time it points to steroids causing the issue. Please help guys.
