Nobody understands the pain you go through unless they experience it themselves - the Doctors even don't!
Hi Sandy I have been told the same as I’m sure many others have too.. apparently its what it does to your bones that causes the pain, such as fractures and the crumbling of them so I’m told.. I have found a height marker on my kitchen wall.. while my hubby was decorating and we thought it would be fun to see if we have grown or still the same.. my hubby and son are the same height, while I have lost 2 inches if not more.. my son says it’s because I’ve curved but who knows, I thought I was standing straight. I have bone pain all the time now and have just had a full bone scan and waiting on results, hopefully the scan will show up why I have so much pain Andy I can get the proper treatment for it. That’s what I’m hoping for anyway.. lol. Fingers crossed. I wish you luck, try a nice hot soak in the mornings.. helps me and if really bad a heat pad and if that doesn’t work.. pain killers. That’s how I cope now..
I no longer believe the myth that osteoporosis or osteopenia is painless.
Oh dear, it's difficult when friends and family minimize what you're going through. They usually don't mean any harm, just don't get it. Look to other people for support (like in this group) who can help you to remain positive as well as acknowledge what you are going through. Pain management can be helpful. I hope it is for you.
