    I don't know what you mean by biologic drugs. I know they are used for inflammatory Arthritis such as RA, not for Osteoporosis. The drugs for OP aren't pain killers, but are

    I have four spinal fractures just by trying to sit up in bed.

    Your GP should be able to prescribe you with drugs for OP. I also use Fentanyl patches for pain, along with Oromorph and Paracetamol.

    Apart from the section on here about OP

    you could also visit https://theros.org.uk/ which is specifically for Osteoporosis.

    Hi @Megyackee1

    From your heading it looks like you’ve got Psoriatic Arthritis as well as osteoporosis. The biologic injections you’re getting are probably for the arthritis rather than the osteoporosis and you need something else to deal with the pain from your fractures.

    It can seem a long time when you’re in pain and waiting for the hospital to call. Could you contact your GP to let them know how much pain you’re in? They may be able to prescribe something or maybe find out more about your hospital wait time?

    All the bst - do let us know how you’re getting on,

    Anna : )
