Is it safe to take Prolia if you have Liver cirrhosis?
Well, I personally would ask my Doctor, Rheumatologist;, some other medical Doctor that would give you a professional answer. If he knows that you have a liver problem, I’m sure he would not have… read more
Here in Manitoba, the health care system is so broken many of us are now without even a family doctor. Whom do you turn to for advice/help with your osteoporosis?
Debjoy, thank you for your helpful answer. As we are without a family doctor now, I will see if the bone surgeon out here can get me in to see an endocrinologist in Winnipeg, about an 1 1/2 hour… read more
Has anyone got pain radiating from the back ( maybe spine?), to under the left breast? It is not a heart issue. Not there all the time but when it comes on it doesn't last for long but feels like when you have a stitch or a mini cramp.
Hi Beau, the pain should go away. I get pains in the night & they usually go away.
Regards Josie xo
I have recently been diagnosed with osteoporosis after presenting to Gp with mild upper back pain
Had Prolia injection two weeks ago and within 24 hours developed flu like symptoms and then lower back pain like I had a broken back. GP gave me codeine pain relief but after a week still really unable to move freely or sleep I am desperately wanting answers but GP unavailable until next week. I am a 73 year old Woman who is normally active and social. Now I feel like an invalid without the… read more
I feel the same Janetma ♥️ no more injections for me…. I walk daily, do lots of stretches and some exercise, but mostly walking and eating a healthy diet along with my vitamins…. Good luck to you ♥️
I am wondering what is worse...low bone density or clogged arteries.
Most calcium tablets are ground rock, plant based calcium i(algae) is best if you have clogged arteries.
I have osteoporosis,and I am happy to say I have not had any broken bones! My bone density test show my 60 year old bones are like that of an 80+ year old women.However I am in pain every day, my knees,hips
,back and hands hurt the most. But my doctors say there is no pain with osteoporosis until you have a fracture or break. And X-rays have not shown much arthritis. How "much" do I need to have for them to explain the pain I have? Have any of you had pain without fracture or arthritis?
I can't stand humidity. Pain is accentuated. Also, allergies flare up. I go to a Myofascial Release practitioner; treatments help with pain. Walking, hot/cold packs, healthy diet and sleep helps, too… read more
My Endocrinologist wants me to take Forteo for 2 years by injection everyday as a bone builder. I am eligible through the Government as I had A femoral fracture due to the medication I was taking. My Doctor has to make application on my behalf to put me on the program. Side effects dizziness, leg cramps, soreness due to the injections. I would like your input on this program. Thank you.
I don’t have any private insurance only what is covered the the Government. If I am warranted coverage it free other that that I have to pay out of pocket $1.000.00 a month. So far I’m holding my… read more

I’ve had multiple prophylactic surgeries to prevent cancer (family history is strong)
I was recently diagnosed with osteoporosis which my doctor considers “severe”, especially for my age (45)
She is recommending I begin Forteo/Tymlos, Prolia or Reclast in that order (she feels oral meds are second to injection/infusion due to absorption).
I’m concerned about cancer risk (although the doc says there is no concern for humans) among other things.
I’m wondering if anyone has experience with… read more
