Hey Everyone. Here is a brief summary of my situation. I was diagnosed with Advanced Osteoporosis October 2007. The reason we came upon this discovery is because I had three disc herniations and 3 cracked vertebraes from a fall in the shower. My DEXA scan then revealed I have sever osteoporosis. I AM 21 YEARS OLD!!! YOUNG!!! Shouldn't have osteoporosis...much less ADVANCED osteoporosis. My doctors are puzzled. I am seeing an orthopedist, spine doctor, family md, endocrinologist and no one can put the pieces together. I did have a baby boy July of 2007...and I personally think that may have something to do with it. My endocrinologists has labeled it "idiopathic" which I am not happy with...because that means there is no known cause for me having osteoporosis. I am basically looking for some insight on this disease at my age and if anyone knows of causes at this age. I am a very fragile 21 year old and I have to be extremely cautious with every day tasks. At any second I could fall and break something else, so Im constantly nervous. Please help! I live in Louisiana, and if anyone knows of a great doctor in this state for this condition please let me know!!!
