I had a dexa scan a couple of weeks ago. The doctor call this morning saying I'm osteoporosis of the spine, -3 on the T score. The doctor said I need to taper the steroids to get off them .don't they think I'm trying .On 4 mg will try 3.5 next week but pain in upper thighs and shoulders . A couple of weeks ago I was having an operation the anesthetist said I should stop taking steroid as they cause bone loss and blood pressure.
Don't think these people know how disabilitating PMR is . Been told to take extra calcium and back on AA .
Been told to jog !always did lots of exercise before prom got me. Climbing and backpacking,cycling touring and racing those were the days😢
