Hello, Thanks for the query to H.C. M. C.
After reading complete H/o your illness I would like to say one thing and that will give you relief.
OSTEOPOROSIS is the disease in which there is severe pain in bones at various sites.
So please get in blood examination for C B C , ESR, calcium.
Dual X ray absorptiometry ( also known as Dual energy X ray absorptiometry) is a technique by which bone mineral density is measured and this test is very very necessary , so please get it as soon as possible .
I am very sorry that you have many disease but god will cure you and you will live a healthy life in near future.
