Discussions that mention morphine

Osteoporosis board


I am really perplexed , I am a 47 yof, diagnosed with Osteo about 5 years ago. I tried Foxomax for 2 years with no results on bone scans and I stopped due to the horrible joint pain which I did not experience until the second year....my knees started to kill me along with shoulders, etc. I cannot tolerate calcium, it blows my stomach up and I feel awful. I am afraid to start on actenol, stupid I know but foxomax did not work and I fear the side effects. I had my most recent dex-scan in April which showed a decrease in bone mass in L-4 area(where I have osteoporosis). I had severe back pain due to I guess an injury to that area In January (don't know what I did), it took me 3 months to recover from all the pain, now I have pain in that area 3-4X/week but I am very NERVOUS about what the future will bring. My Mom passed away 1 1/2 years ago and had SEVERE osteoporosis, was on morphine and I cared for her so I know what this can become. Any suggestions???? I feel like I am at a wall.... Thanks so much for your time...........
