    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.

I have lived with the condition a little less than 5 years now after a motorcycle accident which at the time, only dislocated my left shoulder. Now I am a 24 year old male living with a dead left shoulder. By dead I mean there is no muscle growth or response in my deltoid muscle, as far as I can tell anyway. I can always feel the outer muscles clearly with discomfort which I have grown to live with (collarbone/trapezius....

    Scared to start exercising again...

    I've recently been diagnosed with osteoporosis after a break in my lower leg during a workout bootcamp class. I'm all healed up now but I'm hesitant to get back to working out. I'm afraid to do anything too strenuous because I don't want to go through that ordeal again. Before the break I was a very active person. I did bootcamp twice a week, was in a tennis league and went on long walks almost daily. A friend suggested I try yoga, and I've been doing that without problem....
