I have (among other problems) bad pains on both sides of my T8.
Ortho suggested possible fractures in ribs. Bone mapping (the stronstium test) suggested (among other problems) fractures in T8 transvere process.
They say it is a by-product of the prednisone - I am taking for years (against RA, among other meds) - which might cause osteoporosis.
However, my bone density measures rose (because of Fossamax?) from 109% to 111%.
How can this be explain with spinal (or other) fractures caused by osteoporosis?
