Hi!
Yes, if you have osteopenia then you will have migrating bone pains. Sometimes one region of body will pain and at other times other regions will pain.  Usually the cause is low estrogen and often hormone replacement helps overcome the symptoms. Adding a bit if exercise in your daily lifestyle, giving up smoking, drinking alcohol in moderation, and avoiding prolonged use of glucocorticoid medications (commonly used for asthma) helps overcome the symptoms. Also you should get blood calcium, parathyroid hormone, thyroid hormone and vitamin D levels estimated. Please discuss with your treating doctor. Take care!
