I was asked for my profile which type I had. I didn't know there were 2 types.
I'm feeling very lost. I was told 18 + months ago that I have osteoporosis and I've been waiting for a bone scan since then. I was prescribed a tablet containing vitamin d and calcium. I have developed a stoop which is getting worse all the time. I can feel a hunch developing. I was already in a lot of pain from a road accident 40 years ago and fibromyalgia
I am praying for all our ladies with Osteo
Hahaha, good luck with that if I've already waited 18 months for a scan to confirm the diagnosis!
I suppose it's like the annual checkups for diabetes that happen every couple of years with my surgery, and that was pre-covid 😢
Thanks though, it's useful to have that information. I'm going to chase it up with my GP again. I did ask him about it when I'd been waiting a year. I have so many different things that I have to remember to talk to him about, I need an appointment every day one week so we have time to cover everything.
And I thought I was on all the meds needed (calcium and vitamin d), but reading here it seems that there are various things I could take to help, so I need to ask him about that as well.
Thanks for replying 😀
Unfortunately in Australia some osteo mefication isn't covered by the PBS or available unless you've had a fracture!! Ridiculous! !
