Hi, I have kind of neglected my health, I was diagnosed with osteoporosis in my lower back in 2009 at the age of 38 and given calcium tablets and Alendronic Acid tablets which I have not taken as I should have done! I guess because it's an invisible disease? Far more immediate in daily life has been living as a deaf person and taking tablets for depression and Epilepsy. Then in 2015 investigation started into symptoms which indicated Clinically Isolated Syndrome, a form of MS. I still have numbness and tingling etc and am waiting to see a neurologist again.
Anyway, on the 20th of Jan I fainted and fell in my house, twice, and eventually got taken to A&E where a hairline fracture in my foot was found. I have been housebound ever since, as I am a market trader in antiques it has not been possible to get out! I guess I am asking should I be concerned that I had a fracture just by falling down indoors? This is the first time I have ever had a fracture. And should I insist on having new DEXA scans as nothing has been done about my osteoporosis for years?
Thanks for reading!
