Also known as osteitis deformans, Paget's Disease can start in
any bone in the body. It is rare before the age of 60. The disease
involves the thickening of the bones but instead of becoming tougher
and stronger the bones, paradoxically, become softer and tend to
deform easily. If Paget's Diseas affects the bone of the spine,
nerves are often compressed - producing pain.
