I have RA & broke my shoulder at the end of last year. Am still recovering & receiving treatment but following a bone density scan I have osteoporosis & have been started on alendronic acid. After my first dose I had mild dizziness but yesterday having taken my second tablet I have had severe joint pain so I could barely walk, loss of appetite & chronic fatigue. I have slept for hours & assumed I'd be fine this morning but I'm not. Does anyone have any experience of this & can tell me how long it takes for the pains to settle? I know from the leaflet that joint pain is a common side effect but how do you know when it's the tablet or flare? Never had pain like this ever. Linda
