Hello from JustAnswer.
These symptoms can occur as a side effect to the steroids, but they also can occur as symptoms of the bronchitis. These symptoms are usually not an indication that someone would need to be seen in the ER. If there is significant shortness of breath despite the steroid injection, that would be the indication that she would need to be seen emergently.
Usually, the bronchitis will improve with the injection and these symptoms should resolve over the next day or two.
If I can provide any further information.
