Anyone tried PEMF therapy for their osteoporosis? Expensive but a natural approach and documented results.
I took one dose of alendronate and was in severe pain, upper back/upper ribs/shoulders within about 14 hours. The pain was excruciating to start and has gradually lessened over t days. What causes this pain? Do not want to take it again and just trying to understand the mechanism of action.
Hi! My doc has me on Boniva (from which I'm on withdrawal due to side effects) and 600iu calcium + 800iu D3 twice daily. I ALSO take a WEEKLY dose of 50,000mg vitamin D3. My Question is, what about vitamin K2? My reading suggests a need for K2 in order to direct the calcium from soft tissue to the bones. Does anyone else include K2 in their supplement regimen and, if so, how much do you take?
I have had this problem twice. My Orthopedic and my Arthritis Doctor has taken me off calcium supplements all together. They now have me on Vitamin D3 instead.
What does osteoporosis do to the body besides weak bones. What are other effects of osteoporosis. Does osteo cause pain ie: Lowe back, neck pain etc?
Has anyone tried or is trying Evenity? I've been on Prolia for 2 1/2 years, and bones still got worse. Reading about this Evenity, I'm scared to death on taking it. Only 1 hospital out of all in my area will even give it, and to see in clinical trials women died of heart attacks and / or strokes, and the FDA at first would not even approve it..... I think I would fare better with more fractures. Sounds like it's scary stuff
Lot of pain that wakes me up about. Every 2 hrs through the night and day time naps.feel the pain in my arms and back also feet and leags .Like burning that gos into my bones.
Does anyone recommend anything natural? I don't want to take any meds bcz of severe side effects. I have severe osteoporosis pretty much all over. Thanks in advance for ur comments
