Can osteoporosis come on so quickly?
I need your expert opinion on something: I'm taking weekly generic Fosamax, daily 1200 calcium, daily 1400 D, and every other week 50,000 D. I hit menoapuse about 4 years ago. I have some pretty bad arthritis in my R hip, but my L is much more normal, though not totally normal. I walk briskly and climb stairs 5 days a week.
>
> 2-3 years ago I had taken the high dose D for 1 year, so my scores momentarily shot way up. Then last year my osteoporosis scores dropped 0.1 or 0.2, ending at: femoral neck -1.3, total hip -1.9, spine -1.4. My new scores--1 year later--are: femoral neck -2.8, total hip -2.0, spine -1.5.
>
> That femoral score seems outrageous to me. Is it possible for a score to drop that much in 1 year? I'd have a hard time believing it if it just dropped to -1.8, let alone -2.8. I don't think they've ever dropped more than 0.4 before. I'm thinking there was some sort of mistake. What do you think?
