I received the scan results

I said I would post my results when I finally received them. My spine results in 2006 T score 2.4 standard deviation Z score is 1.7 Current score is T 2.9 and Z is 2.2. In 2006 the hip was T 2.5 and Z 2.0 Current 1.7 and 2.6. None of this makes sense to me and I kinda wonder if the dr read the results backwards over the phone. All I know is in 2006 it was stated I had moderate osteroporosis. He is going to send me to an endroencrinologist. To give a little background. I was diagnosed with osteroporosis 3 years ago. Doesn't run in the family. My mom has it from cancer drugs. I was thin (no more, thank you menopause and bon-bons) I rode horses, line danced, was active, walked, but not athletic. I took Actonal for 4 months and was ok with it until one day after taking it I broke out in a sweat, doubled up in pain, had chills it was terrible. I switched to Fortical and have been using it up until 6 weeks ago and stopped because of some sores in my nose and sinuses hurting. Dr mentioned during his phone call they might have me try Forteo. I just wonder why I have osteroporsis. I will probably have a lip biopsy in Oct to confirm or rule out sjogren's. I read that can contribute to osteroporosis. I definitely have silca syndrome and other issues going on. Thanks to anyone who can explain these. If I posted the scores wrong I will correct them when I get the paperwork.
