I have a question about prednisone----- I seem to have a Morton's Neuroma in my left foot (inflamed nerve) and it is causing my foot and ankle to swell. My doctor put me on 40 mgs of pred for 5 days. Do you think I will gain weight??? And he doesn't have me tapering off just stopping. Will that be okay since I am only taking it for 5 days?

Thanks, Jessie and Lynn. I feel a lot better about taking it now. I have been doing Weight Watchers and have lost 42 pounds. I don't want to gain any weight since I still have a lot to lose.
