I'm on steroids and an immune suppressant and was prescribed Alendronic Acid (and calcium/D) to protect the bones. But I need a lot of dental work and was worried about the side effects so I only took 5 x weekly doses and asked for a dexa scan. The scan showed osteopenia in the spine. Still don't want to take Alendronic Acid though. I've been getting a bit of lower back pain and hope it's not a fracture - though I swear I can hear my bones scrunch if I turn a certain way! I wondered - would wearing a corset/brace help protect my back?
