  • Fragility fractures with osteoporosis

    I am 29 and have severe osteoporosis caused by chronic anorexia Nervosa. Just in the past two months I have fractured 2 vertebrae and 2 ribs, plus other older fractures. But it’s getting worse. One fracture was from trying to pick up a toddler, and the most recent rib I broke by leaning gently on my kitchen counter. My body is crumbling for no reason. I’m scared to do anything anymore. I know I’ll just keep breaking bones. I’m starting nursing school but I can’t have my bones snapping there so I....

    Diagnosed with Osteoporosis at 40, now 46. Scared of treatment.

    Hi. I was diagnosed with Osteoporosis (DEXA) at 40. I'm now 46 and did not follow any treatment. Always scared of side-effects of medications and stuff I read on the Internet. Results were: Region, DMO (g/cm2), Adult-Young %, Adult-Young Z-Score L1-L4, 0.817, 67, -3.4 Left Femur, 0.686, 62, -2.9 Left Forearm, 0.868, 87, -1.3 That was 6 years ago. I have not repeated the DEXA exam. During the last 6 years, I started to take Vitamin D supplements, since blood tests showed that I had vitamin D deficiency....

    Osteoporosis

    At the she of 12 I was diagnosed with osteoporosis. I've broken/fractured well over 13 different bones. I feel as if my bones have become rearranged inside to where I'm starting to look as deformed as I feel. Has anyone been diagnosed that young and can share with me how they survived though the pain and challenges this kind of life gives you? With each new injury I become even more discouraged about living a normal life.

    HAS ANYONE TAKEN PROLIA

    My mom is 78, has had osteo for 20+ yrs. She takes D3 & calcium & tests have been o.k but last year it show great loss. She saw an Endocrinologist & she wants her to go on Prolia (says she is at VERY high risk of fracture). She is very afraid of the side affects. When she was first diagnosed she went on one of the daily Rx but stopped because of side affects. It is so hard to decide what to do? I would love to hear from anyone good or bad that have taken it.

    Help...I'm freaking out over bone density test!

    Help...I just had a bone density test and it's showing I'm osteoporotic (score of -3 according to the radiology tech....my ob-gyn has not reviewed it with me yet). I'm only 53 and otherwise in perfect health!. I am completely freaking out now, afraid I'll be labeled as osteoporotic (with no idea what implications that will have) and doomed to a life of cifosis and compression fractures. I have absolutely no fracture history. I was drastically underweight for a brief time as a teenager....
