2. Symptoms

In the majority of cases, people with osteopenia will have no symptoms. The patient will feel no pain, no aches and pains or any other symptoms that people might expect from the condition. In many cases, the patient will not even be aware they have the condition, and it is often only discovered by chance.

If the condition does progress then it can develop into osteoporosis. This means that the bone loss becomes significant enough to weaken the bones beyond levels that are safe. As a result, the patient’s bones can break more easily than usual, and people with the condition can suffer broken bones even after a mild fall.
