... so and ongoing heartburn even though I avoid all foods and habits (smoking & drinking) that are known to cause it. I've also gained 22 lbs. since I started on prednisone 3 months ago. I had maintained a healthy weight for my entire adult life previously. I don't know what could be side effects or if these symptoms relate to the disease. Anyone else suffering with these effects?

Prednisone can cause severe heartburn, weight gain ,and hot flashes. I'm on Humira for psoriatic arthritis without prednisone and do not have those side effects, your Dr. could prescribe something for Heartburn. After the Humira starts working maybe you can wean off the Prednisone. Good Luck to you.
