My Experience on Evenity

Hello. I thought I would give my views on Evenity. I broke my knee a few years ago, it was a clean break and took about 6 weeks to heal. It was just bad luck that day, I fell in a “snow hole”, it was covered with snow and stepped right in it and turned and felt my knee break. I’m small boned and I was diagnosed with Osteoporosis several years ago in right hip, my hip doesn’t give me any problems, but because of my knee, my Dr recommendation was Evenity. The Rep just left when I arrived at the office for a checkup and I was the first one to try it. I trusted my Dr, no blood work was done to check my Calcium or anything. Well, started them in April. The first shots I could bearly move my arm for days, then my legs were always sore. I have had 4 shots and have been in terrible pain since. Going from a sitting position to standing, it so painful and knees causes me so pain. When I walk, it feels like I’m walking on golf balls. My feet feel cold all the time and I’m being poked with needles, my lower back hurts all away around to the groin area and my hips, thighs and calf’s feels like I ran 10 miles. I’m 58 and walk like I’m 80. I told my Dr, that I hurt so bad and I stopped the shots, his reply was let’s wait until October to get it out of your system. 2 weeks ago I was in outpatient because of the pain. I have switch Drs now and have to have test run next Wednesday. I see a chiropractor 3 times a week, my hips keep going out of place. Please, don’t get this shot, it’s not worth it. My Dr has never even prescribe anything else for me to help with Osteoporosis and everything I read says when all other medications have failed, I didn’t get that option. My body is in pain every single day and I’m totally pissed off that my Dr didn’t care and put me on these shots. Evenity is awful and it’s just not worth it. I pray It’ll get better and I will go with changing my diet and exercise and chiropractor care. There you have it. Thanks for reading!

I am surprised no one has replied to your post. I too have experienced chronic joint pain since I started 2 months ago. Ironically, I received my 3rd session of 12 today. I worked around the house for about an hour this afternoon and I can hardly move without stiffness and pain. Unfortunately, I received my last dose of Covid -19 around the time I started Evinity, so I really don’t know which is the culprit, but I know it’s from one or the other. I am 51 and my dr stated my density numbers were so low, he knew my insurance would cover. So, I had to decide what was important to me. I was very encouraged knowing my bones will actually gain instead of just halt. But, I am having growing concern as time goes on. About 2 weeks after my 1st shot (early September) I worked around my house for several days lifting, pushing etc… my body has not recovered since. It started with lower back pain and slowly started going down the side of my right thigh. I can not stand longer than 3-5 minutes without excruciating pain and burning!!! Ibuprofen and lots of it will help but I know that regimen is detrimental also. I’ve been told by many it sounds like my IT band, not sciatica. I will follow up with my dr in January and I will see what he says if I can endure that long. I will try to remember to update thread then. I would love to hear from anyone else who may be experiencing same symptoms.
