When I Do Anything It Seems Like My Lower Back Hurts So Bad Is This Normal?

When I Do Anything It Seems Like My Lower Back Hurts So Bad Is This Normal?

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?

Hair And Scalp

Hair And Scalp

I have found info about osteoporosis causing hair loss for some people.
My question is - does it cause you to have an itchy scalp - not dandruff. Just a very itch scalp that feels tight when you scratch.
Just checking to see if there is anyone else out there with this.
Thanks and let’s all have a great day!

Qi Gong, Anyone?

Qi Gong, Anyone?

Are you doing qi gong? Are you finding it helpful? For a week, or so I’ve been trying some SpaceToRelax qi gong exercises that are helping me feel less stressed, and less tight. What exercise routines are you doing to stretch and feel better? How much is age related and how much is osteo related? I’m confused!

A MyOsteoTeam Member said:

it could be alot of things like age,history of injuries, ostro. ask your pcp. it's usually many things together.
