I frequently bloat. Worse on prednisone but even off it I still bloat. I was actually asked once when I was expecting... rather awkward. Haven't found a solution unfortunately.

Im on 40mg prednisone now. Still have pain and now worse, im blowed up like a balloon. How long does it take for the pain to stop? I was just diagnosed with Crohn's on friday.

I would say generally within 1-2 weeks pred is working. One thing when I was on pred, salt made horrible painful bloating. Try and avoid as much as you can.

I know it sounds counter productive, but drink a lot of water before you go to bed. You will be up a lot peeing but it will help with the bloating
