Janet, it is mostly aches. I only have to bend around a bit and my lower back aches and it aches in bed but bowen technique help. I also having a creaking neck and get headaches. My neck has been awful since I was 35 so not sure it’s the osteoporosis. Not sleeping well is another sign but pain, real pain comes with fractures.

I had three vertebral compression fractures associated with brief Prolia delay. For several months I was pain free ONLY as long as I lay perfectly still flat on my back. Anything else was agony.

Now, a year later, the fractures have largely healed but pain persists. With a lot of physical therapy I'm doing a little better. A support corset helped a little but not much. I can be up sitting or standing for brief periods. With really good back support I can sit up for an hour or so before the pain starts in, but in about two hours it becomes unbearable again. So this rules out much normal activity -- travel, going out to see a play or for dinner with friends, etc. Luckily I'm retired because I could never manage a normal job in this condition.

I've managed to stay off opioids -- I"d rather have pain in my back than a monkey on it -- and lesser remedies (aspirin, acetaminophen, etc.) don't make a dent. But the change in my life has been drastic.

As to doctors who say "there is no pain," William Shakespeare said it best in Romeo and Juliet: "He jests at scars who never felt a wound!"
