PM, try not to stress. You have a post a couple posts about this. When you see your GP, he should order a Dexa Scan. It's a noninvasive scan that is used to detect & determine the extent of osteoporosis. If caught early, it can be treated with OTC supplements & low impact exercises. A couple of my friends a few years back caught theirs early & the dr recommended this. A year later their scans came back normal, yay. To this day they continue with this regime & have remained osteoporosis free.
By all means ask for a Dexa Scan & do a quick google on it so you have a better understanding of the scan. Insurance will pay for this with no problem.
Arthritis can be painful to get a handle on. I can't take NSAID, I just use different OTC things when it really flares up. Winter is my worst time to deal with it.
