I am taking calcium and vitamin D, with Alendronic acid. I have also started mixing sesame seeds with food, and more green veg.
I do not take calcium or alondrolic anymore, a nurse told me a teaspoon of sesame seeds a day is enough calcium, also jelly and of course sunshine
PS to that, I also walk a couple of miles a day, also do Nordic walking.
I was diagnosed two years ago. I was put on calcium and alendronic acid. After many month I started to feel very ill and had sight problems. I was fast tracked for a brain scan. Nothing wrong. I took myself off the alendronic acid and I got well. I now go to a gym regularly in the hope that this is helping. My doctor was going back to the Consultant to discuss other treatments but I have heard nothing. I am reluctant to go back as I fear medication now after being so ill. I will keep going with the calcium and watch the diet but I am scared. Anyone had the same experience?
