Hi Pitmom, when you go to your pcp, please ask for a Dexa Scan, this scan is used to detect & determine the degree of osteoporosis. My osteoporosis is a result of long term steroid use. I was much younger then too. I did an injectable drug for 12 months to try to help slow down the progression. To this day my dr measures my height, many years ago I lost 4 inches in height. Catching it early is important. Google Dexa scan to get a better understanding of it's purpose.
I hope you get to feeling better.
