I have not been definately diagnosed with Dercums yet. But more than likely I will. I am young for this disease I know. However, I have read somewhere that studies has linked corticosteroids with lipomas...?? I had spinal meningitis when i was 3 months old. They used experimental drugs on me. (I have been trying to find out exactly what drugs.) Anyway, I believe mengitis is now treated with coticosteriods for the inflammation. So maybe then too. Since pain started at age 8 and onset of other symptoms by age 28 that interfered with daily life. My thoughtas are could this be why I started hurting or symptoms at such a young age? I am well aware I can not be diagnosed here or any and all info is opinions. But I am curious as to others thoughts on this.
