Has anyone gained a lot of weight? And is so super bloated all the time

I have gained a ton of weight since I started on steroids in 1998. And my stomach is constantly bloated. It is so depressing. I hate looking in my closet because half of my clothes don't fit.

Yes i gained 60 pounds. I was put on a high dose of prednisone for my lupus and was on it for 7 years straight. Found a new doctor and she freaked that i would have been put on that dose and for that lenght of time and took me off of it. However now its almost impossible to loose it all because working out on most days is impossible.

You might talk to your doctor to see if it is from medication or other causes.

I gained 20 pounds since starting treatment. I'm not overweight though. I'm considered a healthy weight now since I was a mere 100 lbs before I got diagnosed. As for bloating, I do feel bloated a lot of the time, but I feel that's partially my fault because I'm always overindulging on walnuts 😌
