Three weeks ago I was putting the newspapers out at work. I bent down, felt a pressure and then a sharp pain. It was sore for a while but then seemed to go. After fitting a caret this weekend I felt very sore again, so much so I decided I had to go to the doctor. Turns out I had cracked a rib. Last year I had a bone density check which eventually I found out said it was normal for a man my age. The results were received by my dietician but not passed on to my doctor.
My doctor is now asking for the bone density report so he can see whether this could be a cause of the cracked rib.
I always try to take milk or yoghurt with my meals.
This is a worry.
Looking on the coeliac uk site I saw there was a study into whether it is lack of calcium that weakens the bones or is to do with the immune system.
I will have to see what my doctor makes of the report and also the blood tests that he sent me for.
