... Welcome selfhelp... I will quote you as I have written almost the same after taking Fosamax...... "Actonel gave me horrible side effects that resembled a heart attack (turns out it burned my esophagus so I was put on Nexium for that"). I then tried Actonel with the same result! Strontium Ranelate was easy on the esophagus but unfortunately I had very loose bowel motions... (9 replies)

... I have tried Calcitonin and Fosamex at different times. With both medications I got back and lower leg muscle spasms. I believe it is caused because the medications decrease bone resorption and blood calcium levels. In other words more calcium stays in the bones and as a result sometimes the blood calcium gets low. The lower calcium levels in the blood can cause muscle... (8 replies)

... Dear Starfish: Thank you so much for taking time for your explanation. I have had 3 DEXA scans over the past 5 years. I am "overdue" for my next one, as per my physician. However, I am totally reluctant to go as I don't know if I would do anything differently. My doctor said we could try Evista if indicated. I have been "diagnosed" with osteopenia ... I am 47 years...

... Just a thought. Osteopenia and Osteoporosis are generally not believed to cause pain by themselves. Usually it's when a fracture happens that the real pain starts. The Osteoarthritis is probably what was causing your pain. These are opinions I've heard from various specialists and also on the various medical forums. I'm not in the medical profession myself, and I could be... (4 replies)

... Welcome to the boards Omzenska:)! I'll try to answer your questions and hopefully some others will chime in too. First of all, it is possible to have a big discrepancy between hips and spine; my total lumbar is -3.0 but hips are something like -1.5. I'm at a loss to explain the DEXA discrepancy however, except to say that this brings into question exactly how "accurate" these... (6 replies)

... Just wanted to let all my friends on the board know that I stopped the 50000 units of D2 that my Doctor Rx'd a couple of years ago. Been reading lots of info about D3 and decided to self medicate with D3-1000 units once a day. My level has steadily gone up to about 58 with the D2 but, since the D3 is a natural dose, thought it would be better for me. I have an appt.... (4 replies)

... Hi Starfish: I can give you a "very" simplistic answer to your question about bone meds affect on bmd's you would consider very good or normal. Don't forget all of our bones go through this remodeling process even if they are considered normal. We always hope that the normal bones won't get worse, and I would think yours are in excellent shape (except for your spine) which... (12 replies)

... Thank you all for the encouraging comments and your support, I am really touched. I thought about all of you when I found out my score. I was so worried the doc would tell me I had osteoporosis according to their number of less than -2.5, especially since it's been two years since my last test. At my worse, my t-scores were spine -.08, left hip -2.4. E-zorb and my other... (13 replies)
