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, which can indicate a spinal compression fracture caused by osteoporosis.
- Dental X-rays reveal a loss of bone in the jaw, which can be a sign of osteoporosis.
