I went to my yearly gyn appointment and he wasn't there, they botched it up. But I had my bone density and the tech told me I have it and it doesn't look good. I was so upset I had to take a tranquilizer when I got home. As far as I recall, my last one which was about 4 years ago right before I went into the hospital was normal but I'm going to get the records from that doctor and report. I have been in early meno for almost 10 years now and feel this is all caused by my type 1. I was on hrt then but I can't do that now apparently due to having had a dvt/blood clots. I wonder now if they will consider putting me back on low dose hrt? I looked at the list of drugs she showed me to treat this and they all have horrible side effects I really don't want to go that route but if it's really bad I may have too. I have been taking lanzoprazole for a few years for my reflux- I know that can drain calcium absorption so I'm going to go off it and try one of the antihistamine acid treatments instead or maybe just pepto bismal and see how I do on that.
I wonder if my early hashimotos is affecting this? I had a high calcium level the time before last. and I stopped supplementing it completely since June. I wonder if I should start on the levy now and see if it helps this? I do eat a diet with cheese, sour cream, heavy cream, fresh veggies and fruit and I started taking vitamin d with k2 also. I wonder if I should add the calcium supplement back in?
I will be seeing my doctor next Monday and will see what he says. Maybe it's not as bad as she made it out to be but she said I'm at risk for fractures now which is scary. I had just resolved to start riding my bicycle again and I wonder if that's a bad idea. I'm pretty active in terms of always on the go when I'm not sleeping, on an active day at home even without my walks which are 2-3 miles on average my fitbit said I'm walking 3 miles or more just from doing things around the house.
If you have osteoporosis did you have symptoms such as pain/fatigue and things that like? I wonder if it has been contributing to me being so fatigued. Part of me also wonders if they made a mistake- I hope so. How do you treat yours and did hypo if you have that affect it at all?
I also developed pulsatile tinnitus a few weeks ago and I have to get a bunch of tests done now and I'm getting kind of overwhelmed with all of this to the point of wanting to just sleep a lot. Fortunately the PT sound is gone now and I'm hoping to was due to an unseen ear infection or a bad cold I had.
