Excercised regularly, until foot bone break from fall Summer 2012. Still swim and some flex exercises, but no cartilege in left shoulder (bone on bone).
- Why do i feel cold all the time?
I am an active 67 year-old with osteoporosis. I have tried two types of bisphosphonates, but the side effects have been too severe to continue (advice from my doctor)and apart from an ampule of Vit D taken quarterly, I take no medication. The places where I feel cold are in my lower back and upper thighs and hips (where the osteoporosis is worse). The temperature outside is in the upper 20's and I feel cold. I would be interested to know if there is a connection between osteoporosis and feeling cold, and why. Many thanks, Carol Saynor

Have stopped actonel for two months but still have severe acid reflux. I took Prevacid for six weeks. It helped but can't seem to get off it. I have tried changing diet, elevating bed, and not eating three hours before bedtime. How long after stopping actonel does it take to get over this?
