I too am in constant pain. I was on Prolia for a few years ,when I had 3 vertabrae fractures ,T6,7,8 And a fractured rib! I then had a total bone scan and was told I have severe osteoporosis and scoliosis ,spine shaped like an S. Went to and Endocrinologist and she suggested I take an injection, monthly ,of a new med called Evenity. I was scheduled for tomorrow to get first shot ,but canceled after reading up on Evenity and side effects! Can cause strokes ,heart palpitations etc. It was actually not approved in 2017, then was approved after much pressure! Would rather be in pain than suffer some of the side effects! Maybe I should see a spinal specialist??? Took so long to finally get in to see Endo dr.as a new patient !
I have heard the same from a Rheumatologist from Canada,” don’t go on Prolia” ….but what’s a person to do with severe osteoporosis,???? Can a PC ever prescribe Forteo or does it have to be prescribed from a rheumatologist? I can’t get in to see one until May of next year! I have had multiple compression fractures T6,7and 8 and also a fractured rib ,wore a back brace/vest for awhile ,saw a PA who said she has seen better results with Prolia vs Forteo! This all happened in early April of this year,still having pain all over after being put back on Prolia,I had been on Prolia for 2 years and still had the compression fractures,I I never fell at all! I did have a full body scan on July 1st, that is what showed my severe osteoporosis. I am 69 yrs. old and used to be very active ,now emptying my dishwasher is Painful!
I had been on Prolia for 2-3 years, while on it I had 3 compresssion fractures,T6,7 and 8,also a fractured rib. Had a full body scan in July ,which showed I have severe osteoporosis. My dr. Wanted me to see a Rheumatologist and start Forteo injections,but I couldn’t get in until May 2020. She said she would order it for me ,but had to get an authorization ! Ineverheard anything from her. Meantime ,I started having neck shoulder and arm pain ,went to see a PA,as I couldn’t get in to see my dr.,told her my story and she said she has seen better luck with ProliathanForteo ,she wrote a lengthy note to my dr. And I finally got a call saying my drs. Was putting me back on Prolia. Was going to go for my b-12 shot and Prolia shot ,butTHENI heard from a friend that her Rheumatologist said Thatshe shouldn’t be onProlia ,it sometimes “triggers things”. Whatever that means ….remember that I had been on Prolia when Ihad allmyfractures!!!! Called my dr.,spoke to her nurse’s voice mail ,but never heard back ! Don’t know what to do now …am thinking of going to Urgent Care for an X-ray and go from there!
