Thanks for posting your query
After going through your suffering ,severe weakness of bone (osteoporosis
) for which calcium tablet alone may not work. The osteoporosis may be confirmed by Bone mineral density (BMD) by dexa scan along with X ray
of spine.Leg pain could be because of pinched nerve
For now my advice would be-
1. For Osteoporosis there is few options like- calcitonin nasal spray
(Rock bone C nasal spray).
- Once a year injection of zoldronic acid, once a month tablet of alendronate
, once a week tablet of osteophos.
- Injection Teriparatide
You may discuss with your treating doctor and decide what is best for you.
Take balanced diet rich in calcium (1000mg/day) and vitamin D (1000 i.u. /day) along with vitaminB12, B6.Vitamin D is available in weekly dose pattern as well as injection, just talk to your local doctor as the above written medicine are prescription only .
Hope this information suffices.
Take care and I shall be glad to answer any further query.
