Hi everybody!

I'm new here so I wanna start off by saying hi to everybody! My name is Tiina and I'm from Finland

My problem is, I had a stress fracture in my right hip and a broken collar bone without any trauma in Jan of last year. It took them a long time before they figured out my hip was broken but when they did they put screws in it. Well, it didn't start to mend so they had me using crutches and sitting in a wheelchair for a long time. Then they decided I need a hip replacement which they did. Now my other hip has a stress fracture in it, without any trauma. So I'm wondering what could be wrong to cause my bones to break like this. I have an MRI on Wednesday and I'm supposed to get the results on July 10th. I don't want to wait that long and I'm scared as to what's wrong. =(

I'm only 28 years old so you would think my bones wouldn't be breaking. I am quite overweight but my boyfriend keeps telling me that still my bones shouldn't be breaking like this. If they don't do more tests or anything I don't know how to demand treatment. I guess here the culture is different so that Finns tend to accept what doctors tell them without questioning it. I feel like I have no right to question what doctors say and I keep thinking they're doing the best they can but maybe they haven't been doing everything they can.

Anybody have any idea what COULD be causing this?

  • Hi Tina,If your bones are breaking like this then you must be low on calcium. Your body can absorb calcium without magnesium. So why is your body either low on magnesium or not absorbing calcium?Have you had an ulcer? H-pylori is the bacteria that causes that and it lives on magnesium. It that is your problem, there is a triple antibiotic combination that will cure h-pylori and Natural Calm brand of magnesium citrate is wonderful for a host of conditions.Why are you overweight? Are your urine protein levels elevated? Do you have gout? Urinary tract infections?
