I have been taking thyroid medicine for years, probably 10 or more, I also have been taking Prednisone for the past 2 1/2 years. I have been weaning off the steroids and am down to 3 mg. I am beginning to "feel" all the pain I had before I ever began the steroid treatment but now with some new issues. Last Dec. I got really sick with bronchitus and was put on a large dosage of Steroids. It was at least a month I could not stop coughing. I did breathing treatments with a nubulizer and finally quit coughing but it took another month before I finally felt as if I was past the bronchitus. I have problems breathing at night due to sinus drainage and now I am having pain under my chin. I have a double chin which feels "fatty" but no lumps and is sore to the touch right where it meets the neck. Would someone have any idea what this might be and oh yes, I tried to do a breathing treatment the other day and the first few times I inhaled the medicine it hurt? Not in my lungs, but above where your Adam's apple would be? Thank you for any help- Bobbi
