Osteoporosis can cause loss of height and back pain, both of which can contribute to balance issues while walking or standing. Balance issues might look like stumbling, difficulty getting up, or trouble walking short distances.
On MyOsteoTeam, the social network and online support group for those living osteoporosis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Balance issues are one of the top most discussed subjects.
Here are some recent conversations about balance:
"My balance is off, making it hard for me to walk."
"After my brain hemorrhage, I've been losing my memory and balance a lot."
"I'm now using a cane when I go out because I'm off-balance when I walk."
"My previous medication decreased my spine's bone density. Has anyone had success with HRT for osteoporosis?"
Can you relate?
