Osteoporosis and Tiredness
I am trying to find out if osteoporosis can make a person tired. I have severe osteoporosis and I am only 52.
If you have veterbral compression fractures with pain, you may be feeling tired from the chronic pain. Osteoporosis generally does not cause any symptoms until you have a fracture. A feeling of fatigue can be associated with chronic pain. Check with your primary care physician about your fatigue.
