that's not good. try getting more calcium in your diet. milk actually isn't the best source of it, but its still better than nothing. tums might be a good idea. its pure calcium, i think.

I've been drinking milk for 15 years now and I feel perfectly fine and I've never broken a bone even tho at some situations I should have. Milk does make your bones stronger

tums are sucrose and calcium carbonate. so they're not just calcium, but you were close. #6 is correct, taking calcium and vitamin D supplements would be the best bet

Actually, its shown that diets high in calcium (2000mg) have the same hip fracture rates as diets lower in calcium (500mg) the most likely cause of your weak bones are genetics, but almonds are shown to improve bone health so i would suggest adding them to your diet, as well as eating a diet rich in whole unprocessed foods, and low impact sports, such as swimming to keep your bones healthy :)

Also if the doctor suggests you take calcium supplements, they are actually proven not to be very effective (does not improve hip fracture rates) and have some horrid side effects- id suggest the best thing you can do to improve your bone health is doing low impact sports :)

I do too but mine is from low muscle tone from my apraxia which affect my mouth muscles too moving to make the sounds of words and arms too (should of explained this better) (going to get voted down)

Get a personal trainer and start weight training. In addition to helping you lose fat, build muscle, boost mood, improve sleep and so much more, weight training also helps improve bone density.

This is true. One of the things I was told while being treated for anorexia was to switch from excessive cardio to an obviously lesser exercise plan, but one that included good weight lifting/strength training.

Eat more greens and beans, make sure you're getting enough magnesium, exercise regularly, don't use any antacids (you need acid to absorb calcium) and stop drinking the tap water

My doctor told me something similar, actually... After years of anorexia and extremely competitive sports for hours daily, I essentially gave myself osteoporosis and a bunch of spinal injuries. (And I was 14.) There's still some time for you to turn it around, though. Good luck.
