i first posted about a year ago when I was prescribed AA and was very wary about taking it. Even though I was not diagnosed with full osteoporosis, I have a fracture of my spine, about which I was not aware, though I suspect I caused it lifting some very heavy bags of rock salt.
From the beginning I was very reluctant to take it, mostly because of the possible dental problems in the future but decided, because of the fracture, I would try it. I have actually tolerated it quite well, though I dislike the morning each week when I take it. I also take Vit K2, magnesium, cod liver oil, Vit D3. I cannot take calcium supplements as I have kidney stones but I have increased my calcium intake through food.
My fears have been reinforced this week as I have a bad toothache and will need to see the dentist. I do not know if I will need an extraction, which because of the potential complications, terrifies me.
Basically my question is, has anyone on this forum had a fracture and still not taken any prescribed medications? I don’t want to act irresponsibly and will, of course, consult my GP but there is nothing like talking to people who have experienced a similar situation.
