Hi there

Thanks for the query

It appears that you may be suffering from generalized bone weakness or Osteoporosis.

Do get a DEXA Scan done to confirm. Also get some blood tests like Complete blood cell count, CRP, Anti CCP. Also get tested for Serum Vitamin D levels.

You can take Acetaminophen for the pain.

You need Vitamin D and Calcium supplements.

I hope I have answered your query.

I will be available to answer your follow up queries.

I (56 yrs male, non-smoker) am taking medicines for hypertension for the last 23 yrs; Losacar-H in the morning & Atenenol (25 mg) in the evening for the last 7 years. BP is mainatined at 130/80 level. Of late, on suggestion of my doctor friend I stopped taking the evening dose, (Atenenol is a back dated medicine) but feel as if some head ache is there and BP is found 140/90 level in the evening. Due to heel pain I do not go for walking and my waistline a little bulging. What is your advice?
