Thank you for posting your query.

I am glad that you are taking very good care of your health.

Osteoporosis leads to weakness of bones, and subsequently leads to weakness of muscles.

Treatment involves taking the medicines you are taking. In addition, vitamin D supplementation would also be useful.

Please continue the muscle strengthening exercises, walking, etc to increase the muscle strength and endurance.

I think you meant multiple sclerosis (it was typed as mutable sclerosis). Please get back with the status of this.

Hope it helps.

Wishing you good health,

Thank you for getting back.

Regarding disability.

Stress is a known trigger for relapses of MS, so, you should minimise the stress as much as possible.

In addition, exposure to heat/hot climate should also be minimised, as heat can aggravate the symptoms of MS.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD (Internal Medicine), DM (Neurology)
