angelstarz you should ask your doctor if you can stop the fosomax for a while, if you do some researc on it you will find that it has made people have Everything from nausea to loosing teeth to breaking a femur bone by just standing up after taking that fosamax . I would not give it to my worst enemy it is bad medicine and also if you look online there are tons of women who have been injured by this drug and are going to court to sue the Drug companies. they know that it is bad and quite dangerous but they continue to dump it out on unsuspecting women who trust too easily the greedy doctorsView Thread
I heard running is too stressful on osteoporosis so I walk - but fast! I also walk wearing a weight vest which my therapist recommends its very comfortable and looks good by nyknyc With the added weight my MD said I have gained some bone density back again so I am sticking to my program of proper diet and weighted vest.View Thread
