Does osteoporosis have any symptoms?

Unfortunately not. Osteoporosis is largely a silent disease and by the time a patient has severe back pain and stiffness or a fracture after a trivial fall(usually of the spine/hip/wrist), it means she has largely gone undiagnosed.
Thus, it is extremely important for a clinician to know all the risk factors of osteoporosis (refer to part 1&2) Sadly, in India, a majority of the osteoporotic patients are diagnosed after presenting with a fracture or after a loss of height(compression of vertebrae).
