don't want to jinx myself but I have not gotten it yet. A little bit of puffiness some mornings around my eyes (but could be the pred making cry the night before). I am on a 1500mg a day low sodium diet and it's not that bad to follow also I have given up all caffeine (prob. nothing to do w/it) and have given up soda as well (maybe? about 300mgs of sodium I am not having anymore). I still have edema though, could be from the MCD??? I do feel puffy but have lost 4 pounds since starting the pred - not eating salt has cut down my fav foods like chips, plus have had diarreah for two weeks.
