Osteoporsis Diagnosis

Osteoporsis Diagnosis

I want to know if anyone in this group never had a symptom that you have Osteoporosis . I never suffered but my doctor has for a bone density which showed that I have Osteoporosis. I have fallen all my life and never broke a bone. I was born with a connective tissue disorder. My doctor tells me it is because I have not fallen in a particular way to cause a fall.

Hi Becky. I'm glad u added that 2nd post, now we have a fuller picture of what has happened to u. I'm so sorry for all the physical pain u have gone through & then the mental/emotional pain of divorce & what came before that. Yes I have read stress is not good at all for us with OP. Well, I hope u can have a more calm life now & totally take care of you. Hugs & blessings. πŸ€žπŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

I had a couple really bad falls after I was diagnosed and didn't break anything!
My first fracture happened when I bent over to put clothes in a laundry basket! 2nd one was from a fall. This last one I tripped backwards and cracked my spine squarely on the window ledge. It is the worst fracture yet. I'm about halfway through healing....and I recently fractured my wrist pushing myself up... I'm not even bothering to go have it x-rayed. Just not using it and keeping it straight to heal.

No ageing is not easy. No one understands the pain, my daughter says move around more and walk, I know it supposed to help but they don't know how bad it hurts

I have no symptoms, haven’t fallen- no breaks or fractures other than a broken arm in 9th grade ( from being knocked over by a friend doing a cartwheel). I’m not taking prolia. I was diagnosed by my oncologist with dexa scan only.
Wondering if the Letrozole he has me on caused it.
