I've never had back problems, but now no matter what I do my lower back feels like it is about to break. It doesn't matter if I just stand or if I am on my knees planting flowers, washing dishes. By the time evening gets here I am in so much pain. Is this normal for having osteoporosis?
Another thing, how old is your mattress? My physiotherapist told me that many back problems stem from old mattresses or the need for orthotics in the shoes.
I went to the Dr. for the back pain and he sent me to physical therapy who explained to me the pain was coming from the muscles that now had to do more because with the osteoporosis the back needed more support . The PT worked with me over a course of weeks in strengthening muscles in my core and legs and it has really helped a lot! I continue to do the exercises (the PT is finished) and the pain continues to improve.
It really sucks and I'm really at a loss still. I just wish I had more stuff wrote down from that visit.
I'm sorry to hear that you are having problems with your bavk, have you had a Dexa to confirm that you have no fractures in your spine? I have heard that this is an issue for some people.
