Hi there .
Not actually fully diagnosed yet as waited 5 months for a dexa scan . Having said that I had MRI in hospital in March that showed 3 fractured vertebrae. Plus bulging discs . I haven’t had a fall at all . I bent to get something out of the oven back in November and got extreme shooting pains like electric shocks . A few months later I collapsed just walking and couldn’t move .
Have been unable to walk unaided without a Walker and cannot walk far .
2nd MRI scan in July revealed another vertebral fracture plus nodes plus bulging discs further up my spine .
Finally had dexa scan 12 august as my Dr pushed for it . Still not seen osteoporosis team or any consultants other than when I was hospitalised .
The Dexa Scan was awful by the fact that I was refused any assistance . Can anyone tell
Me is this normal please as I was shocked and upset by this . Not to mention the extra pain it caused me . Sorry this is so long winded .
