Hi.. Apart from the gastic pain, short course of steroids do not cause side effects. Unlike long term treatment with steroids, which causes calcium deficiency, joint pains and so on.. The chest pain may be related to the gastritis and it can be treated with antacids...  However the other symptoms may be unrelated to the steroid treatment..
