I am new here and have read so many post that my head is swimming. I have many questions as to what do I do now?
I am 67 and have been in pretty good health most of my life. We retired 7 years ago and moved to Montana where we have to truck our water in to our cistern.This is underground and is steel lined. I have never felt good about this but felt I had no choice.
Last year I started having lots of leg pain, my leg joints felt like they were burning and felt very swollen. I gave in and went to a Dr. Test showed very little vitamin D, and osteo Arthritis, also too much calcium in my blood.
I go home and decide to stop drinking the water, go off all sodas, started taking vitamin d3. I felt much better, not well but better. My Dr. insisted I have a bone scan,and that showed osteoporosis, and Dr. wants me on those medicines.
I don't want to take those medicines, none of them!!
I got a message from one lady here that gave me some good advice, and I have started researching. I think I have read so much that I really don't now what to do from here.
How to get my body back to normal? I know I am old but I believe I was created to last longer than this, and I try to take care of what I eat or drink. I live in the country and don't have access to fast foods, (thank God)I make everything we eat,I really try and yet I am not well.
