Has Anyone Had Trouble Losing Weight After Being Put On Prednisone?

Has Anyone Had Trouble Losing Weight After Being Put On Prednisone?

I was only diagnosed about a year and a half ago. My doctor wanted me to try Prednisone for 2 weeks tapering me off it in those two weeks to confirm I have AS. I gained 30 pounds in just two short weeks and now am really struggling to get it off. It has also made my body ache more since I am carrying the extra weight. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I could do? Thank you for the help!
