Sep 25, 2019 · Prolia treatment for osteoporosis in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I have had at least 6 injections of PROLIA, the first was without side effects. Subsequently, I have struggled with pain in my back and legs .
This past spring I developed PMR , ( was diagnosed by a rheumatologist). My blood tests were normal so it was not understood how I could have PMR.
I will not be taking PROLIA injections any longer , as I believe this medication contributed to my PMR.
Our grandmothers never took any of these medications and they did just fine .

Had a slew of blood tests, waiting for results , doctor said symptoms are that of PMR. or could be LUPUS. Doctor is cautious of steroids because of my osteoporosis>>>
Also , does anyone experience a heaviness on chest , and always trying to catch a breath ???????

Thinking of your struggles, Hope it all works out for the best. ( Think of the best of times you spent while on your European holiday .)

PMR sufferers , does anyone feel like you had the wind knocked out of you in the AM. , and shortness of breath ???? usually Advil will help somewhat.
