I don't think spontaneous fractures in women are that uncommon. It is linked to low bone density, osteoporosis, menopause and hormone changes, thyroid gland/parathyroid gland malfunctions, steroids, and genetics. Some drugs that affect calcium or calcium levels can be blamed, too. Many falls in our elderly are blamed for hip fracture, when it is increasingly thought that the hip/femur fracturing is what then results in the fall. I've heard docs tell family members that it "just happens". I hope your leg heals well, and fast.
God knows, even if I don't....
