What Causes Brittle Bones And Dark Urination?

I have concern about some symptoms, and my doctor is ignoring me. Brittle Bones (fractures in ankles occurring randomly), Urinating is dark and it looks like there is blood in it, feeling like I have stuff in me not coming out. What should I be looking for? I feel like I am scared I have a cancer and am starting to feel afraid because I can t get my doctor to see me even going through all the symptoms.
