1 day ago · Osteoporosis in Bones, Joints & Muscles

https://www.amazon.com/AlgaeCal-Plus-Supplement-Ingredients-Plant-Based/product-reviews/B0056HNB7G

Read customer reviews here. I was excited about taking this until I read customer reviews. I don’t know anyone taking this so I’m basing my own decision on these reviews.
You will see mixed reviews; hopefully it gives you some information.

4 days ago · Months of Chest Pain - Please help in Digestive Health

I was also on Omeprazole also. When you stop taking a PPI you will experience rebound symptoms. When I stopped my Omeprazole when it ran out I experienced really bad reflux symptoms. Dr said that was a rebound effect from stopping the med. Please call your dr and let him/her know what’s happening now with you.

I was taking omeprazole 40 mg twice a day for only two weeks when I stopped it because of side effects and I had lots of the rebound effects for a couple of weeks until I started another PPI. Sorry, that’s probably not what you wanted to hear, I imagine this is probably true with most if not all PPI meds.

I think Mayo is a good choice. I go to the MN site every 3 months for treatment. Keep in mind that it can take months to get in because they are so very busy. If I were you I’d start the process of getting an appointment now. You don’t need a referral but that would make it easier and possibly faster to get in. In the meantime you could be thinking about your options and questions. Have your list of everything you mentioned here and all you want to get checked ready. That will help them with setting up appointments within the right departments.
Also, an initial first visit can be a good two weeks. Keep this in mind if you have to travel some distance.
Good luck to you. Hoping you find some answers.

Fri, Jun 28 1:09pm · GERD treatment: Diet vs. drugs in Digestive Health

I’m looking for anyone that is successfully treating their reflux with diet or supplements instead of drugs. In reading about the drugs used to treat reflux disease, I’m reading that they play a role in bone destruction. I have osteoporosis so I’m reluctant to start any drugs prescribed for reflux. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

@johnduo32 cure and treat are two very different words.

I did Botox one time for my head pain. It just didn’t work for me at all, still had lots of pain.
Now I get 3 nerve blocks once every 3 months. That works like a charm for me. Maybe you could ask your doctor if that might be an option for you.
I remember putting that off for a couple of years hoping there would be a pill that I could just take everyday. Now I’m so sorry I put off getting nerve blocks for those years.
Something for you to think about. Sending you good wishes and hopes that you find the answer you are looking for.

Sat, Apr 27 8:42pm · Prolia treatment for osteoporosis in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I was on Reclast for six years, that was the max allowed then. I didn’t have any side effects at all. During that time my bone scans remained the same; at least there was no decline. Now after three years of no meds at all I will be seeing an Endocrinologist in early May. Hopefully there will be no decline. I am positive because I had two ankle injuries last year with no bone breaks.
