Insomnia and Osteoporosis

Posted on April 27, 2018

A recent study has found that loss of sleep may contribute to bone loss. Worrying about osteoporosis or insomnia may keep us up at night, which may contribute to worsening symptoms. It can be a vicious cycle. For many, managing sleep is an important part of managing osteoporosis.

On MyOsteoTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with osteoporosis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Insomnia is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about insomnia:

I've been having discomfort, feeling tired, and not sleeping well for the past few days.

Fatigue and back/neck pain has been an issue. I am having trouble getting to sleep tonight.

My sleeping patterns are weird lately; no matter how late I go to bed, which is usually around midnight, I still wake up during the night between 3am-5am.

I have to take a pain pill with a sleep aid to get any sleep.

Can you relate?
