In brief: Depends
In the early stages, there might not be any symptoms.
Symptoms in late stage of the disease include: bone pain, loss of height, stooped posture or pain from fractures that occur because of the osteoporosis (hip, wrist, vertebra-lower back, neck pain..) you need to be treated if you were diagnosed with osteoporosis. The condition will not get better on its own.
