Looking For Solutions For Arthritic Pain In Addition To Having Osteoporosis

Looking For Solutions For Arthritic Pain In Addition To Having Osteoporosis

So I am on alendronate for my osteoporosis. Also taking Magnesium, calcium and vitamin d.
Now the arthritis that has moved in is raising havoc. Two Tylenol arthritis will give me relief- but I know that isn’t good to take too much of.
So- anyone out there have any remedies that won’t cause problems down the road?

Hi, I take up to 6 paracetamol tablets a day for pain relief. If pain acute take 2 ibephren after meals as well.
I rest in the middle of the day otherwise too much pain from osteoarthritis & osteoporosis.
Cheers jx

Dear denimiche, I am more than happy to give you info on bones. Bone broth chicken bone broth Organika from amazon is so good for bones and calcium and magnesium no more than 1500 mg calcium per day and just 250 mg at any one time and half that of magnesium so 1500 mg calcium and half that of magnesium will put on a lot of bone plus probiotics stonehenge or Jamieson so good for bones and I know a man who got over osteoporosis and out of his walker just by eating plain natural yogurt each day as it is a probiotic and has a T factor in it that stimulates the bone marrow and in turn strengthens the bones. Try not to take any steroids if possible. If you get Jamieson calcium and magnesium you can take 4 pills a day an hour apart. Fosamax or aldedronate is only meant for short term treatment as it weakens the bone over time and causes fractures and trouble with the jaw bone. Didrocal is the worst one and my aunt died of osteoporosis as she would not listen to me and was on Didrocal and actonel puts on weak brittle bone. I know some people on prolia and are okay with that. I am on phenobarb the worst drug for bones and two other drugs that causes osteoporosis yet am okay at 71 years old. The home made yogurt is far better for you. Kefir a yogurt drink in the grocery stores cuts down on the risk of fractures by 81%. Hope this helps.

Nobody listens to me and I don't have any more time to type for hours only to be ignored. I heard magnesium is a pain killer par excellence. I only went on this site to help others. Some of the top doctors here in Toronto listen to me. Good luck.

I think aldedronate is the same as fosamax. I was told that fosamax is only meant for short term treatment as it weakens the bone over time and causes fractures. I knew a woman who took fosamax for 5 years and was in awful shape. Many others also have had no end of trouble on long term use of fosamax. My aunt died of osteoporosis while on a bone building drug
I don't know what to say to people. Actonel puts on weak brittle bone. I do know a lot of natural things for bone. I am not a doctor but my doctor called me into her office years ago to ask me what I was doing as she said never in the history of her practice has she even seen anyone once diagnosed with osteoporosis put on so much bone. She said they all go downhill. If anyone wants any advice I will give it to them but I am not a doctor. Some people do okay on prolia. Forteo is a new drug out for high risk people but so many side effects.

What about CBD oil , it is very good for pain. It does not make you go loopy or get high. It seems to be a gentle way to take away the pain.
If you are buying vitamins then go to a health store with a naturopath so they can check what you are getting is right for your body.
Wishing you all the best.
Note - heat l do use at times for pain but if the area is hot then coolness - icepacks, can help calm down the inflammation.
