I have it from my chest up through my face. I got purple stretch marks on the sides of my chest, huge ones!! my neck and face melded together, I still have a bit of a chin, thankfully. I have been down to 5mg of pred for a month now and not much difference.
I will speak to my Dr. when I see him on the 22nd. I have all the symptoms, it sucks. I am curious to hear what others say. I have heard it takes 3 to 6 months of being off pred before you look like your normal self again. though I will have my stretch marks forever.
I may seek out an endocrinologist.
