I have osteoporosis,and I am happy to say I have not had any broken bones! My bone density test show my 60 year old bones are like that of an 80+ year old women.However I am in pain every day, my knees,hips
,back and hands hurt the most. But my doctors say there is no pain with osteoporosis until you have a fracture or break. And X-rays have not shown much arthritis. How "much" do I need to have for them to explain the pain I have? Have any of you had pain without fracture or arthritis?
I think anyone who thinks there is no pain with osteoporosis has never had it
Is your pain constant or after sitting for a while
I had lots of pains seven years ago
To get off the sofa I had to first drop to my knees and ease myself up, these were the worst times
I joined the gym
I started slowly never ever joined a gym before
I swam first for three months
Then circuit then Pilates
The pains went
I’m trying hard to get back to the gym but have a slip disc which is holding me back a bit
But I walk a lot and am trying to do thirty mins on the tread mill incline of 7- 8
I watch the invictor games and realised that if a young person with limbs missing could excercise so could I xxxxxx
Yes, I have pain. Shoulder blade and shoulders and lower back pain. I started 2 yrs ago in a vitamin regiment and walking. Since taking the vitamins I don't feel like I've been ran over by a mack truck when I wake up in the morning. I can actually roll over without being in pain. I have my ups and down days. At times I don't hurt and other days I really hurt. But feeling much approved since exercising and regiment. I will keep you posted after my scan. As of yet no broken bones.❤🙏🥰
I have never had pain from Osteoporosis. I do emphasize with you. Unending pain is almost unbearable.
I think it is important to distinguish pain sources. I have Osteoarthritis in my knee and wrists. It is treated differently than Osteoporosis. Hope everyone has a good doctors who can identify true pain sources and not just assume it is Osteporosis.
