Other than during my period I do not ever get breast tenderness,.

Having had it now for a few weeks without a pause Im wondering if there is a connection with the steroids Im on.
Its exactly the same in each side and at times its quite uncomfortable.

Anyone had this on steroids?.

An update on facial appearance....Im now a chipmonk with a bullfrog chin....
Oh Joy.
I had a green top on and pulled in my chin and made a rivetting noise ( RIVET RIVET!) in front of my husband who laughed and grabbed me saying I dont look any different.
Men are such hopeless liars:)

Hi Nicky,

When I am on prednisone my breasts get larger causing them to be tender just like when you are first pregnant. Could this be the cause for you?

I love your frog story, brought a smile to my face.

Take care,
Lazylegs

Thankyou for the replies.

Lily , yes I think your right, a sensitivity to hormone changes. It makes one wonder.

Lin, do you have he buffalo hump as well:wink2:. I think I can see one growing but Im not sure if its more paranoia:lol:.
If I do get a hump I probably will get big long hairs in it for full effect:lol:.

Im not at the stage yet where the side effects out weight the benefits but I want smaller boobs anyway. Im never going to make the catwalk with the ones Ive got..

Chantel, hey stick around you never know here what gets to be normal:lol:.

Hope your lucky and yours are really your own size and not enhanced:)

Thanks all, now Im normal:)
