    I have recently sustained two broken ribs, the first when coughing and the second when I was ironing. I was in agony but just couldn't believe bones could break just like that! I had an ultrasound at my GP's practice and then a full body bone scan and sadly, I am appalled at the state of my whole skeletal system. I have had back and neck pain for a long time but put it down to inevitable wear and tear. I am saddened.
    I have been on levothyroxine for 25 years and lately it has been difficult to get the dose right. Also am on clopidogrel because I had a TIA in 2012 whilst being treated for cancer. I have obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and I feel that a diagnosis of osteoporosis may be the straw to "break the camel's back"... no pun intended ! Honest. I feel decrepid and long past my sell by date.

    I will do my best to get as much advice as possible in order to maintain the bones I have. Any kind words will be so welcome.

    I have severe OA with spinal fracture, etc. I had taken Celebrex for about 15 years.
    I stopped taking it 3 years ago. I'm thinking about taking it again since OTC pain relievers are ineffective. Other NSAIDs burn stomach.

    I guess I'm interested to know more.

    What was your reason for joining the group?

    Diagnosed with osteoporosis approx 2 years ago after fractures of the spine but had muscle pain in back for years previously, so must have had osteoporosis a long time previously. Very high readings in my spine. Had eye spasms for approximately 9 years. Saw the connection today on this site. No one has made the connection, including specialist appointment and GP appointments.

    I had a hemorrhagic stroke almost 10 years ago. I was put on the generic for Keppra shortly after my stroke to control seizures.

    I had a chest x-ray 2 months ago. The radiologist noted some bone demineralization. When I asked my Primary Care Dr. what's up with that, he suggested a bone density scan.

    I had this done, and it turns out I have osteoporosis! I'm furious at my former neurologist for not saying a word about this. The neurologist I now have, though very caring, said nothing about it either.
