My sympathy to you. I am white F, now age 63. At 38, with 4 children, ages 12-2, I was diagnosed with advanced osteoporosis. I presented with 8 1/2 years of back pain and at the point of seeing the right dr. had multiple compressed fractures in my back, a dowager's hump already appearing and like you, was throwing off a lot of calcium in my urine. Had a bone biopsy, and was finally diagnosed with hypo-phosphatemic osteoporosis. In a nut shell, that means my kidneys were unable to process the intake of calcium to my bone. For all but 3 months, I had been either pregnant or nursing during the entire 10 years prior to my diagnosis. I perceive that you are a male so I can't say this was the cause but I recommend you either contact an endocrinologist or an orthopedic surgeon at a teaching hospital. That's where I got the appropriate help. Are you losing height? From 1967, when I got married to 1984, when I was diagnosed, I lost 5 full inches in height. My best to you.
