The more I read about different treatments the more confused I get. I have had several fractures and realize I need to do something- fosamax didn’t work for me. I certainly don’t want to end up in worse shape than I am already because of side effects of a treatment !!!!
I certainly will be praying for all you ladies. I don't know if this will be of any help to anyone but I stopped taking my vitamins a lot of them a few days ago and my nerves were so bad today I thought of going down to the emergency at the hospital it was so bad worse than ever and I began to think that all this started a few days ago when I stopped taking my vitamins and minerals and I took a lot of them and about a half an hour ago I feel fine and no problem and as good as new. I have had a lot of blood tests in the last while and that can deplete your body of a lot of vitamins and minerals and that helped me. Also my friend who is 77 years old her back was in terrible pain where she could not even get her dinner ready and she took some calcium and magnesium and her back is fine now. She has osteoarthritis and osteoporosis and a degenerative disc but is fine with the calcium and magnesium. Hope that helps someone
Still undecided about algaecal, but very skeptical about Reclast. Have heard so many horror stories! Any comments would be appreciated
Ginger, several people on this site have had good results with AlgaeCal. I just read a post tonight where someone couldn't tolerate it. I also could not tolerate AlgaeCal. My stomach got very upset. I did not have any trouble returning my unopened bottles. We all have to decide what we want to do. I hope you get more answers about AlgaeCal.
Ginger, I agree with Marianne. One needs to do alot of research on all the osteoporosis medications and find out the side effects.
Well Ginger I don't know how bad your osteoporosis is but mine was terrible and I started eating 750 g of plain yogurt each day for six months and my bones got really strong according to my doctor. It is because it is a probiotic and kefir is also a probiotic and probiotics cause the bone marrow to strengthen and grow and also cause the bones to strengthen a lot. There are also other things you can take. Barley Green is one of the best but I am allergic to it and fish oil capsules and I take calcium and magnesium and put on 20% of my bone taking that. There is strontium and algaecalplus which is guaranteed to put on bone after six months.A lot of these can be bought through the internet
