Over the last month I have had an odd occurrence of pain and weakness in my legs. It has happened three times. Suddenly I feel a whoosh of pain in my back that shoots down my legs. Pain subsides relatively quickly however my legs feel very heavy and weak. Makes it difficult to walk and stand. Am wondering if it is all related to my osteoporosis in my spine and hip. Scary when this happens.
I know the feeling. I twisted my knee and was slow to recover .it's hard.
I refused bone meds out of fear of side effects and have suffered four vertebral fractures and scoliosis. I am miserable and now my oncologist says they probably can’t be fixed by Kyphoplasty because I have discs involved. But I need an MRI and to see a neurosurgeon. I’ve been in a recliner for seven months and I feel my life is over. Can anyone relate or help me?
My mother took Fosamax for over 8 years and still broke her hip. I have friends who have tried the shots and still broken bones. What have you found the most effective treatment for osteoporosis? I am also trying the exercise program by Margaret Martin. I already exercise daily and this helps me focus on a program particular to osteoporosis; including tips on what not to do. I have also heard that your diet is also a factor? Has anyone found this to be true? Thanks so much.

I have osteoarthritis all over my body but now my spinal pain is getting worse some time it hard to walk as my spine raises up
I have degenerative osteoarthritis of my Lower spine which has caused sciatica to my right leg , the pain is unbearable especially in the mornings, I’ve tried stretches and am quite active but it seems that after I relax the pain gets worse , it’s been going on for 5 months now sometimes it wakes me up during the night
I’ve had sciatica. The only thing that helped was steroids.It literally took the pain away, the only thing is, you can’t stay on them
I had been taking Forteo injections for two years and did have an increase in my T-score, especially the hip area. Then once off for a few months for some dental work before starting Prolia, I fell and broke my hip. Now I experience anxiety, experience thigh pain when I am up for an extended period of time.
Has anyone else ever had a fracture while on treatment?
