its only been a month and half since I had Bronchitis and I went through the antibiotic treatment as well as a round of prednisone. I was finally starting to feel better. Now my cough is back and somewhat productive. Im easily SOB and my chest tightness has returned. Also my neck and shoulder just ache along with frequent headaches. Is it common to catch another infection right after recovering from one?

Prednisone suppresses your body's ability to fight infection, so it is possible that you have picked up another infection. If I were you, I'd talk to your doctor about why you are having so many problems and what can be done about it. You may also find help from a Naturopathic Physician, as they seem to be more experienced with building a strong immune system.
