I’m a 56 white female in menopause from 45
My gynecologist prescribed Priolia as I had advanced Osteopenia
My first injection was in Oct 2016 Everthing seemed alright Plus my density levels stayed stable so had second injection April 2017
In May 2017 my nightmare started All of a sudden my whole body ( from the tip of my head to the soles of my feet ) was in constant PAIN swelling I walked around for 2 months not knowing what was wrong with me Finally saw a rheumatologist did a huge amount of blood work then Cortisone meds etc After no success as symptoms where not rheumatically related She diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia and prescribed Cymalta ( anti depressant ) Which I did not resort too as didn’t believe I have Fibro Subsequent side effects have been hair loss for well over a year eczema foot infections and hives Still continued with my 6 monthly Priolia injection
During the last year my pain subsides slightly( for a month ) and then flares up to the point of I’m incapable of doing anything Very miserable sleepless painful days and nights And heightened depression.The worst being everyone told me it was psychosomatic I am due to have Priolia agin in Oct 2018
Went onto Priolia”s site to read hard facts that I’m sorry I had not read before !!!!!;
ALL my doctors ( Rheuma Gyni Lung Dermo and Pathologist ) NONE had come up with maybe ALL this could have been due to Priolia side effects ????
Today 19 Sept went to a new gynecologist and finally he confirmed ALL my symptoms were very viable to be side effects of Priolia Agreed I should stop Priolia And go onto Livial ( obviously has side effects ) but I’m willing to try it
Feel relieved and finally after so long realize it def wasn’t psychosomatic!!!
Tho hair still falling out but taking vitamins and can only hope things will get better Know of course there are after effects having taken Prolia but I’m personally willing to take the risk
If anyone has had similar effects would appreciate hearing how you have dealt with it
