Back Problems board

Thanks all for your kind words and replies!
I just had a dexa scan a few months ago. My T score of my spine was -2.8. I took Actonel a while back for 15 months, and went from osteopenia to osteoporosis after taking it. I couldn't take it anymore because of the terrible back pain that I had. I just was put on the combipatch, HRT hormones ,a month ago from my endo.
I call it "lifting" my Mom, but I actually have to help her out of bed, by pulling her up. I don't actually have to carry her, and know that I can't possibly do that!
I will soon call for an appointment so I hopefully get an xray or MRI, at least for piece of mind as to why I have this pain!
