Symptoms of Osteoporosis


Symptoms of Osteoporosis depends on the bone health. The bones of a healthy human body contain small voids similar to the beehive’s shape, but in the case of osteoporosis, these voids increase in size, which leads to a decline in bone density and strength, which leads to their weakness. It is worth mentioning that osteoporosis is a common health problem, and it should be noted that osteoporosis causes an increased risk of bone exposure to fractures, and that most bones prone to this are the rib bones, hips, wrist, and spine.




  • Symptoms of osteoporosis in the early stages

In the early stages of osteoporosis, symptoms are rare, and people often only develop a hip, pelvis or wrist fracture.


But these symptoms can indicate early infection with osteoporosis:

  • Gingival recession: The gingival recedes when the jaw loses some of its bones
  • Weak fist in your hands: A scientific study found that the fist of the hand weakens when a person develops osteoporosis.
  • Fracture of nails: nail health generally indicates the strength and firmness of the bones. If you notice a large fracture of the nails, it is important to undergo a bone density test.

In general, as indicated by osteoporosis, it does not cause distinct symptoms in its early stages, so it is important to undergo appropriate tests, especially if there is a family history of the disease.


Symptoms of osteoporosis later

When the bone density decreases as the disease progresses, you will notice various symptoms, such as:

  • Low length: Low bone density in the spine can cause short stature, which is a common symptom of osteoporosis.
  • Bone fracture in the event of a fall: the bone is weak and fragile, which exposes you to broken bone in the event of a fall, even if it is slight, and sometimes it may result from a strong cough or sneeze.
  • Back or neck pain: Osteoporosis can cause spinal vertebrae compression which leads to back or neck pain.
  • Curved position: Osteoporosis can cause a curvature of the upper body, which results in back and neck pain and may affect breathing.
