Apr 3, 2016 · Chronic pain - Let's talk in Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is complex. I have chronic pain in cervical spine, shoulders and arms. Doc says no surgical fixes. MRI shows several promblems in those regions. Recently cut way back in bydracodone due to constipation. Senna stopped being effective. Went to gastroenterologist and was told dependence on laxatives will cause no harm. What i use now TENS, topicals and the most effective is the large size tiger balm patches. If you have not tried them i suggest you do. Best price found on puritans pride web page. Ibalso take an herbal laxative which works.

The injection itself is not painful as it is sub cutaneous only.

Mar 31, 2016 · Would like to know people's experience using Fosomax. in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I have taken Prolia for 2 years and currently on a years vacation for Kidney issues which apparently not caused by Prolia. I had great results in that I went from Osteoporosis to Osteopenia within those two years and gained 1/2 inch in height. I had no side effects at all and will most likely go back on it. You must take calcium supplements and Vit D supplements and have blood within 2 weeks of the injection. Shot is not painful and needs to be done in a Dr. office. Good luck

Mar 31, 2016 · Do Prolia injections affect the kidneys? in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Thank you so much. My doc does draw serum for electrolytes and Vit D within 2 weeks of Prolia injection. My calcium is usually around 9.4 in that area and do supplement both ca and Vit D. One more question If you had stage 2 or 3 kidney disease and osteoporosis which medication would you take? Thanks again

Mar 30, 2016 · Do Prolia injections affect the kidneys? in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I have been on Prolia injections for 2 years now. My kidneys were being effected by a lowering of GFR to 45. I am now on a years vacation from Prolia and GFR has increased to 50. My doctor said Prolia does not effect the kidneys. So now I am confused.

I took this drug several years ago for a long time. There was really no benefit. Dixa scans remained the same throughout.
