hi everyone I have osteoporosis of the spine & hips as some of you know ... the other week was my birthday and my son ( bless him) picked me up & gave me a bear hug ..there was a lot of popping noise coming from my spine but no pain , now I know the theory is that the popping noise is just air being released from the joints but the question I have is ..is this a good thing or not?.........should I be getting a lot more bear hugs ?
Happy birthday a bit late Myth!!! Mine is today. What day is yours? I don't know an answer to your question, but i would think if nothing hurt then and nothing hurts now that it was just air. Just remember it happening so if in the next few weeks or months you have back pain you can tell the dr. about the hug and popping. Personally i don't think a person can ever get too many hugs, so go for more, but tell your son to be a bit more gentle. We're off to the movies..have a good day. take care, phyllis
O.K. Girls Happy Birthday to me also, lots of Birthdays this month. Once again I love this site, and thank you all for all your information over the last year. Lets hope the next year is even better for us.
happy birthday phylwill and Katc ,may we have many more in good health
I have been researching the popping of the spine & found some say its a good thing and some say its not , I dont think anyone really knows but since theres no pain Im not going to worry about it.
All the birthday girls... hope you enjoyed your special days...mine is next month every year now gives us something to be thankful for ... our health is the most imp of course and yep we may have OP but I feel healthier now than I did 10 years ago because of all the supplements and good bone nutriets.
