I wondered if this affected the kidneys somehow as I try to drink a lot of fluids when on prednisone but don't have the urge to urinate and my legs triple in size until the skin is breaking
Are you saying you feel like you have to urinate but can't go, or are you not producing urine in the first place and putting it in your legs instead? Why are you on the prednisone? Prednisone causes some fluid retention, but what you're discussing isn't every day run of the mill water retention. Have you had any kidney function tests done?
