I SO understand your situation. I, too, am having severe problems with osteo in my lower back. Doctor wanted me to take forteo. I have done a lot of reading about it and while it is FDA approved there is controversy over it. It really has not been around long enough to tell what the long term effects will be.
I have decided to not take it but rather do weight bearing exercise, take a calcium product called E-Zorb which has had very impressive results without any side effects and drink 3 glasses of skim milk a day plus a multivitamin containing magnesium and a vitamin D supplement. After all of this, I am hoping that this October when I have my dexa scan there will be improvement. Good luck to you in whatever you decide.
