Brief Answer:
Multiple osteoporotic fractures

Detailed Answer:
Hi there

Thanks for the query

I have read your query and give through all your reports.

It appears that you have severe Osteoporosis of the bones of your spine.

There are multiple compression fractures because of the Osteoporosis.

I would recommend you get your Vitamin D levels checked.

Also do get a DEXA Scan done to find out the strength and density of your bones.

You may require Bisphosphonate and PTH therapy to strengthen your bones to prevent further fractures. Calcitonin nasal spray can give your since relief from the bone pains. You need to use a lumbosacral belt to support your back.

Please provide more informative of the injections that you received after which I can guide you to taking the next step in reducing your symptoms and preventing further fractures.

Regards,

Dr.Aashish Raghu
