I just found this on an osteoporosis site- has anyone tried it? Is it safer than the bone density drugs? I saw my gyn and he wants me to go to rheumatologist to treat this, I will look for one asap. I'm having a lot more pain in my back and I hope it is not due to O but I'm worried it is. I can barely wear a bra lately because it presses on the are where I have pain- anyone know any comfy ones that still have some support? I'm too large to go braless but I would love to. I got the fruit of the loom sleep bra and I'm considering trying that for a while even though it's not quite enough support and I will look different etc.
I'm so depressed and scared still on and off... it's very overwhelming to deal with all of this at once.
My z scores were worse than the last one by about -.2 increase on both spine and hip I believe. the second report has a lot more numbers and I'm having trouble understanding it. He said it's pretty bad though. He already had my last report- I"m not sure how he got that because I didn't ask my doctor to send it to him? Very odd. I had picked it up myself and that was the first I knew that it said I had O, not a word from that doc. I asked the new gyn to test pth again and he is testing vitD, calcium and ferritin as well as something else. I would like to have calcium in urine checked also.
Another odd thing was someone from his office called and said he wanted me to see another gyn there who treats osteoporosis and she also started talking about prolia. I told her I wasn't going to take it and then she backed off and said I could just see him at my appointment. When I asked him about it he said he never said anything about taking prolia.
When I do more exercise I have more back pain so I'm not sure what to do about that, such as the step with ankle weights. I get a bit of relief from the endorphins and then the pain gets even worse. There is no way I can do 30 minutes five days a week but most days I walk extensively around the house, shopping, teaching and then my walks on some days. Of course that and all my gardening etc. didn't help to prevent any of this.
