I'm 21 years-old and have Osteoporosis (long story). I was diagnosed a few years ago.
I often do weight training exercises that are an hour long 3-5 days a week. Recently (about 3 weeks ago), I received an injection called Lupron Depot for Endometriosis. My doctor insisted that I receive it right away and did not inform me that it is not advised for those with Osteoporosis. She felt the benefits outweighed the risks (though with all of the side effects I've been experiencing, I do not agree). Since the injection, I have felt like my ankle is sort of "disconnecting" as I step off my curb to leave my house. It leaves me with pain.
I was advised to be on Osteoporosis medication last year, but turned it down because the risks and side effects are awful-- I tried one and it made me extremely ill. I currently only take calcium supplements because I do not think Osteoporosis medication is safe.
I'm worried I may have a fracture.
