I went to my primary dr. this morning. I finally got him to re-xray my left foot. It does look like I have another stress fracture.  This is the second on the left foot in less than 5 months.  I have had a stress fracture in my right heel last year.  I have also have 2 vertbrae fractured and repaired. I have had 3-4 ribs fractured also.  I can cough and crack a rib. One time they fractured the rib by me being on the table to get an epidural for my back.  Now that was fun!!!
 
I just wonder should I see another type of specialist in drug induced Addison's disease as osteoporis from long term steriod use?  If so, what type of specialist?
 
The primary dr. ordered me a air brace(?) for my left foot. But the only place to get one here was out and won't have them in until Fri. Well, I see the othro dr. on Monday. So to save my out of pocket of almost $90.00 I am just going to wait until Monday.  Dr. and meds are taking all my money!!!! confused
 
 

Here is a list of my meds. I keep trying to decrease or eliminate some but then I get sick again.
