Itchy flaky scalp. Tried prednisone. Pain in the feet and flashes and cloudiness in the vision. High sugar levels. Related?

I have been suffering with itchy, flaky scalp . Tried every medication including prendisone from the dermotologist, 8 months later, no relief, even used clobetasol solution. My feet always hurt and feel cold and my eyes are bothering me now, lightening bolt flashes and cloudiness. my fasting blood number was 122. Is this all connected somehow? Please help, I am 59 years old and my anxiety is through the roof!

Steroids(prednisolone) does increase your blood sugar. Please have your intraocular pressure checked as well.
Bolt flashes & cloudiness has to be investigated by proper ophthalmological examination, becoz it can be due to anything.
