Just completed a Medrol Dose Pack about 4 days ago

Just completed a Medrol Dose Pack about 4 days ago for severe back pain not responding to NSAIDS. Two days ago started experiencing SOB with mild exertion, palpitations and irregular and elevated HR. I don't take any other meds except occasional Advil prn. Are these side effects strictly from the Medrol and if so how long will they last. They are quite debilitating.

Hello. I started a medrol dose pack on Friday for excruciating right hip pain. I spent the weekend taking it and icing my hip and resting it. I m 85% better now on day 3. I m wondering if the medrol is simply masking the pain such that when I m finished with it the pain will return or should I expect (barring re-injury of course) that I will remain pain free or at least greatly improved since I am now.
