Ok, this is a long shot. My bones appear to have lost density since I went on Paxil. If you've read my website you'll know what I'm talking about. After searching on line to see if there is a link between Paxil and bone density loss, to my surprise I found another girl with a story similar to mine.
Thanks Nemesis. Here's why I am concerned:

In 2000 I hiked a 77 km long trail in 6 days with nearly 40 pounds on my back. It was difficult but amazing. In 2003 I recieved a stress fracture in my foot upon flexing my foot after a 1.5 hr hike. After healing this fracture I received another stress fracture in an adjacent bone of the same foot while doing a 2 day hike. A bone scan shows I am mildly osteopenic (osteopenia is the precursor to osteoporosis). A bone specialist says I am not finished laying down all of my bone mass and so my bones are a bit less dense than the average person my age. My question: So why did I not break my foot when I did the 77 km long hike??? Has my bone density decreased??? Blood tests show I have an adequate amount of calcium and my thyroid gland is normal. Furthermore, I have always obtained sufficient amounts of calcium in the past as well as been quite physically active. Hmmmmmmmm.....

What was your level of activity like leading up to your hike in 2000 versus the recent events?
Hi Nemesis,

Thanks for caring. Well, I too have asked myself this question. I would have to say there was no significant difference in the levels of my activities prior to the 2000 hike and the more recent bone fractures.
