    Physical changes are typically the most pronounced short-term symptoms as they are not easily concealed by the novice user and include:
    1-Unusually greasy hair or oily skin (often with stretch marks on the inner joints)
    2-Small red or purplish acne, including breakouts on the shoulders and back
    3-Gynocomastia, the abnormally excessive development of the breast tissue in males
    4-Persistent bad breath
    5-Thinning hair throughout the head or receding hairline (male pattern baldness)
    6-Increased length and thickness in hair (on body parts other than the head)
    7-Hair loss in bed, shower, comb or brush
    8-Jaundice or yellowing of the skin; this signals liver damage
    9-Skin eruptions and infections, such as abscesses and cysts
    10-Drastic appetite shifts (extreme hunger or lessened/loss of appetite)
    11-Joint pain; greater chance of injuring muscles and tendons
    12-Disrupted sleep patterns (not sleeping well or sleeping too much)
    13-Fluid level changes, bloating (face & body), and night sweating
    14-Dizziness, trembling, nausea or vomiting
    15-Rapid or progressive weight gain
    16-Increased muscle size (sudden or progressive)
    17-Hyperactivity or lethargy (too little energy)
    18-Trouble urinating; discoloration or blood in urine
    19-Rare and occasional side effects
    20-Steroid abusers often experience mood swings

    Personality and Psychiatric changes often happen suddenly and without visible triggers or reasons. They include:
