Osteoporosis, which is characterized by a loss of bone density leading to weakened and brittle bones, can cause pain even with mild stress. This condition affects both genders, but postmenopausal women are particularly at risk due to lower estrogen levels. Additionally, a magnesium deficiency has been linked to an increased risk of developing osteoporosis.
