I just found out that the prednazone (steroid) I was on 14 years ago is the probable cause for my current hip problems. I was only on those meds for a few months but because I was 13 at the time and still growing, they did some major damage that didn't actually manifest until a couple years ago. I have had trouble with my hip off and on for 5 years but the most recent X-rays should that I have cysts in the ball joint of my femur. I am only 27 and this is something that generally occurs in much, much older women. I am still having MRI's done to help discover how degenerated the bone is but the orthopedic specialist says it is most likely due to the steroids taken during my growth phase. I just wanted to give everyone a heads up in case they have had hip problems and were on steroids during puberty.
