hmmm, to the best of my knowledge, weight gain is more popular, and i think its because of the prednisone.. i assume you are on that?
i actually fluctuate, because my appetite fluctuate. right now im losing a lot of weight. i barely consume much. but then even when my appetite is low, i still gain weight at other times because of my meds, and the dosages.
