osteoporsis

Can you have osteoporosis in your head? A Dr. told my sister she had it in her head. Never heard of it there. Usually in your back.

Hallo Coreen
You can have osteoporotic bones anywhere in your body, and if your skull bone is very thin, all the others probably are too. Osteoporosis is a disease that affects all the bones in the body but the weight bearing ones like the vertebrae and hips are usually the first ones that break or collapse and that is why we normally talk about these.
