Hello~None of us are doctors here, so we really can't diagnose what the problem could be. I suggest seeing your GP, he/she will be able to tell you and do the needed tests.

Hi.  So, are you talking about 'bent' bones and not fractures?  A complete fracture is when a bone breaks all the way through and the other is when it doesn't so the bones 'bend' or look bent.  How old are you, if you don't mind me asking and how long has this been an issue that you've noticed?  

There is a rare disease called 'bent bone dysplasia syndrome' But am guessing you don't have this as it has a host of features and is very serious.  

Here is information on various types of fractures of bones. https://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/understanding-fractures-basic-information  They call what you are talking about a 'greenstick fracture'.

So, do you have frequent issues?  What has your doctor said?  There is Paget's disease.  https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/pagets-disease-of-bone/symptoms-causes/syc-20350811  If you are older, there is osteoporosis.  There is brittle bone disease but that often shows when you are a child if this was happening back then. https://www.webmd.com/children/brittle-bone-disease#1

Give a bit more information and we'll try to help.

Bent bones not broken. Including deviated nasal septum bone and both shoulder bones.

Wendy, do you know that the 18th century disease Rickets is making a comeback? Rickets can weaken bones and make them become distorted. That's been mainly in children, though.

The cause is malnutrition and also lack of sunlight, such as in cities. There is also a rare genetic version.

I saw your other post where you say that you are eating and drinking a lot more now. Maybe you weren't getting enough nutrition previously?

Here it is:

**ADULT** rickets
     (uh-DULT RIH-kets)
    A condition in adults in which bones become soft and deformed because they don’t have enough calcium and phosphorus. It is usually caused by not having enough vitamin D in the diet, not getting enough sunlight, or a problem with the way the body uses vitamin D. Symptoms include bone pain and muscle weakness. When the condition occurs in children, it is called rickets. Also called osteomalacia.
