I always thought that the pain in my joints, especially in my hands and knees was just part of aging. Now I don't know if the pain is from osteo or just age
Hello everyone...hope you are enjoying your day
I'm gatheri g as much I go as I can..not so much the internet...i have a nurse friend who is a wealth of knowledge about holistic approach....so I'm g oing to be mindful of alkaline vs acidic foods and work on a balance...it is I treating that medical doctors never mention this approach as it gives you hope and some control over your body
I m still experiencing a lot of pain from the multiple compression fractures
God bless you all
I have osteo and arthritis...knee replacements..hip fracture...cracked pelvic.. I fine out if bite the bullet and exercise and keep moving my pain and mental outlook is so much better..
My pain is caused by the fractured vertebrae and the shifting of my ribs caused from the spinal fractures. None the less I associate it all to osteoporosis. I did not have pain until the first fractured vertebrae. Good point, new perspective to look at.
I agree - there shouldn't be pain from osteoporosis. It seems to be very common for people to suffer from more than one degenerative disease, even though (like me) they have had no fractures) I also spinal canal stenosis, and my pain is from that. I get an ache in my spine at times though, where I know the osteporosis is.
I hit the jackpot! I have Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid and Osteoporosis. As a Nurse for 50 plus years I had ‘normal’ back pain. I know what the fracture pain is and can take weeks to resolve. My entire lower spine collapsed in 2017 but wasn’t diagnosed till a year later when I couldn’t walk. Chronic pain can be an issue. I can now push through pain. My Osteoporosis was caused by a diseased Thyroid which took all the calcium out of my bones. Thyroid came out last September and I have yearly infusions to (hopefully) build bone. I exercise madly and am building muscle to support my bones. 4 pain free days this week which is excellent. Good luck on your journey 😊
