I had a fall over a year ago and received 6 compression vertebra fractures. I then have at least one more with no falls. I have had this stenosis pain since I was 18 years old but there was no MRI's then and so I went undiagnosed until the early 90's after an MRI. I was diagnosed with colitis (ulcerative) 11 years ago which caused me a great deal of pain and eventually they put me on steroids because.nothing else worked. THEY THINNED MY BONES SO NOW I HAVE THE BONES TO AN 85 year old and I am 72 years old. I have been taking forteo. I have been taking enfusions for the colitis of Entyvio.
