Just been to the GPs for the result of my Dexa scan and yes I now have osteoporosis, due to having to take PPIs on a long term basis. Given tablets that I take once a week and not to sit or lie down for 30 minutes after taking. One of the problems that it could cause is ulceration of the gullet. I have enough problems in that area so have decided to wait until I have had my gastroscopy in January and have requested an appointment with my Rheumatologist in January also so that I can discuss this with him. I also want to know what else I can expect to happen and what is linked to this Limited Systemic Sclerosis.
