Does anyone have severe abdominal pain from pred. Even on the coated version I have severe swelling - ok to be expected!!!! but the pain is just horrendous. As the morning goes on my abdomen swells to the extent that I look 7 months pregnant - no exaggeration - but the pain !!!!! I feel like I'm on fire inside. Even on a lower dose now I have this circa 4 or 5 mg.
