What Are the Symptoms of Osteoporosis?
A person is often not aware that he or she has osteoporosis until a fracture occurs. But there are occasionally symptoms of the disorder. They could include:
- A gradual loss of height and an accompanying stooped posture
- Fractures of the spine, wrist, or hip
Call Your Doctor About Osteoporosis If:
- You develop a backache or sudden severe back pain, without obvious injury.
- You have a loss of bone in the jaw, which can trigger gum disease and other oral health conditions.
You break a bone after a relatively mild trauma.
