Buffalo hump - neck fat

Does anyone else have what I have heard called the Buffalo hump or excess fat on the back of their neck from steriod use?

how about the belly fat and hair growth? That's what I have noticed being on it as a kid/teenager, seemed like years before it improved once off the steriod.

Hi, Been on prednisone for a few months, Hard to tell if it's me being 20 but I've noticed quite an increase in facial here and belly fat. Not much I can do though except shave

Normal?

I don't even remember what it would feel like to feel normal!!

My nerves are fried from feeling bad and trying to keep it all together at work and at home.

True I will never feel normal compared to my family and friends but I try to make the best of it and the pain relief and improvement of symptoms I am getting from the medications is far better than the pain was before for now.
