I have recently been prescribed Forteo for severe Osteoporosis and would like to hear from anyone who has used it. I am 58 years old and have been told that I have bones weaker than most 82 year olds even though I have taken calcium for years. I fell in 2001 and crushed the L1 vertebra in my back. Since then I have not been a day without pain to some degree. I am also interested in any suggestions for this disease. I have arthritis and fibromyalgia and find it difficult to exercise as much as I need to, however I am doing water exercises. I'M TOOOOOO YOUNG TO HAVE ALL OF THESE PROBLEMS!!!!!!
