Hello!Just searching around, trying to figure all of this out. I just turned 35 this month. I have been having back & hip pain for years. I've been Dr. hopping. Trying to find one that will take me serious. And not blame it on depression. They either wouldn't think to do an xray or when I asked they didn't feel it was necessary. So, I've gone all this time not knowing an answer, and being in pain
My last Dr. I asked him if we could do xrays. He said he felt it wasn't necessary. And, he said just take a pain med & have to deal with it
I tried a local Dr. in my town. And, she got all info from my last Dr. & said she thought the last Dr. did everything he knew how. I didn't disagree with that, because he did ALOT of blood work! But, told her he refused to do an xray?She said it was time for that, and if that didn't show anything. She would order an MRI.
I called the office after waiting almost 2wks to hear something. They said confirmed osteoporosis. She set an appt up for me to have a bone density test done on the 9th to see the severity. And, then I guess we will go from there?
Can anyone help me out as to what can be done for this?I'm just tired of hurting
I feel like I'm 100 yrs old. I can't even paint my own toe nails without getting stiff and having to walk hunched over til the feeling comes back into my back, hips & legs???My back hurts every day, some days worse than others. This summer has been more rough than any others. I haven't felt good, and so I haven't done much. I have gained 10lbs. And I know that doesn't help. I started eating better yesterday & drinking more water. The kids & I are going on bike rides and walks. Alternating days of course, cause I would have to sit on the couch the rest of the day if I did both!
Some days I feel sick. I run a fever, and I feel like I have the flu. I'm super achey
Thanks for any info!
