Pain and Osteoporosis

Pain and Osteoporosis

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 am sorry your in pain
I think you know your own body better than anyone else.

Push for more test but I believe you do feel pain through this illness even without breaks.

Try lots of sensible exercise.
check with you GP /Physio which ones are best for you.

Have you had an MRI ?
Which bones are worst than others
Are these the areas in your body that hursts the most ?

I had awful pain in my knee
My surgeon said a bone around the outside was fine but inside it was like a crunchie bar.

It doesn’t hurt at all now as long as I am careful how I stand or bend

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.
