We're desperate to find out whats wrong with my mom....

in August 2008 my mom begun to experience severe pain in her ankles and feet. She had broken a multitude of bones. since then she has continued to break bones, by putting no weight on them... for instance she'll put her foot on the ground with no pressure on it and bones will break. They suggested Rheumatoid Arthritis, she was negative... her bones in her feet and ankles are dead and are no longer generating though.

In Feb 2009 she was diagnosed with Amyloidosis and it is most prevalent in her kidneys, actually she tested negative for it being in her bone marrow, and they caught it in early stages. At first this seemed like the answer of her feet and ankles, but it doesn't answer anything. All the experts of Amyloidosis say they have no idea what is wrong. Actually every doctor she's been to has said they've never seen any case like her.

Please help, my mom is in a lot of pain, and she can't get permanent disability unless they have a diagnosis. and she has had trouble getting a wheel chair without a diagnosis as well

  • Osteoperosis?? Get a calcium check done. This would explain breaking of feet and ankles as they take the most weight.

  • hi this is just a long shot Fluoride causes teeth to rot and crumble, as well as your bone to scrumble and can cause osteoporosis? Fluoride interacts with the bonds which maintain the normal shape of proteins. With distorted protein, the immune system attacks it's own protein, the body's own tissue. Fluoride (at 1 ppm) in drinking water: Fluoride can damages the immune system you need to do a lot more reading on the internet..http://www.wholywater.com/fluoride.html http://www.bing.com/search?q=CAUSE+OF+BONES+TO+CRUMBLE&go=&form=QBRE&filt=all&qs=n :rolleyes:

  • Ok, I don't know about amyloidosis nor bones actually dying, but here's what I would do: get a good hair analysis to look for deficiencies and correct them. In particular you might want to look into a possible copper deficiency as copper is required for cross-linking of collagen and bone. Without cross-linking, it's like building a brick house without overlapping the brick -- bones will break easily. Also B vitamins are involved in proper formation of bones and joints. I do not know how, but it has something to do with methylation -- you disturb your methyl cycle if you don't get the proper B vitamins (this would show up on a homocysteine test). If bones are dead - I would wonder if she had proper circulation to feed them. Is diabetes a problem? These are just a few possibilities to look into. Good luck.
