Hi All. Bet this isn't the first time this question's been asked but does anyone out there suffer from unpredictable bloating and fluid retention on prednisolone? I know corticosteroids are famous for making you retain salt and i've been on pred at 7.5 for donkey's but I still suddenly suffer thighs that blow up and wobble like jellies, a waist that disappears and a face that mostly has cheekbones looking like Hammy Hamster! Lovely. I'm post menopausal so it isn't the horrible hormones getting their own back. After a bit it all goes away and I'm back to normal shape again (a slim 9st 4lbs). So help - let me know if anyone else feels like a blimp on the steroids.....
