I took massive amounts of steroids for the next 10 years. The disease went into remission (doctor's words) and I was fine for many years. Now, I am in my early 60's and my joints and discs are disintegrating. I have already had one hip replacement. My back discs are degenerating and I am in constant pain. Could any of this be due to the steroids I took as a child?
