In brief: Talk with doctor

Osteoporosis does not hurt! it is a completely painless disease until you break something.
This is not what is causing your symptoms.

In brief: Arthritis tests

Osteoporosis does not cause symptoms in the absence of fractures.
If joint pain is present a rheumatologist could order tests to determine if rheumatoid arthritis or other types of arthritis is present.
