Osteoporosis: What People Don't See (Infographic)

Posted on April 11, 2018

There's so much more to osteoporosis than meets the eye. Below the surface, living with osteo can mean days spent in bed, missed appointments, and alternate days when we seem "fine." We know that osteo comes with hundreds of possible combinations of symptoms, many of which appear invisible to outsiders. Most people don't see the many symptoms we experience.

On MyOsteoTeam, the social network and online support group for people living with osteoporosis, members discuss the chronic nature of the disease and its hidden symptoms.Throughout the year we will share themes we see come up time and time again on MyOsteoTeam. We chose the image of an iceberg to represent osteo symptoms because the life-impacting implications of osteoporosis aren't obvious on the surface. Please share to spread osteo awareness!

This list is by no means exhaustive. What symptoms would you add?
