A woman who was prescribed high doses of steroids to treat her asthma-like symptoms started to develop water retention, joint pain and increased blood pressure. She was on the steroids for 1 ½ years before another doctor linked her problems to the steroids. She eventually had to have a hysterectomy due to uterine calcium deposits caused by steroid use. Other side effects of steroid use can be bone loss and immune system problems.
