Understanding Osteoporosis — Symptoms

What Are the Symptoms of Osteoporosis?

A person is often not aware that they have osteoporosis until a fracture occurs. But there are occasionally symptoms of the disorder. They could include:

  • Backache
  • 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, without obvious injury.
  • You break a bone after a relatively mild trauma.
