i'm a 38 yr.old mother of 2 who has known since i was 31 that i have osteoporosises & i know that pain came with the disease but lately i have been getting dizzy & passing out & sometimes blindness with the back pain & wonder if anyone else has ever had this happen to them;because my grandmother has osteoporosis & have never seen her have these issues just the pain & my mother-in-law had it also & don't remember her having these promblems either just the pain & not being able to get comfortable enough to sleep a lot of the time so i'm not sure if my newest issues are normal or not; i also can't take any of the meds they have out there for my osteoporosis because they cause side effects that i can't live with since i have children even though 1 child is an adult now what the drugs do to me isn't a good thing for my youngest child to see me go through because of his issues he was born with.View Thread
