Hi, I've been taking alendronic acid since end oct/Nov 16 can I just stop taking it. I think it's making me feel far worse. I have TA/GCA Nov16. Rhumy has me on rapid decrease prednisolone (started on 40) now on 12.5 2weeks then drop to 10for 2weeks then 7.5. To be honest I feel like shit. My scalp is so sore. I can hardly walk without my rollator or 2crutches. My hips/lower spine are so weak and pain it's feels like I'm going to collapse in a heap. Rang GP this AM she said go up to 15and see how next few days go.
I was diagnosed years ago with CFS and fibromyalgia so I'm used to the fatigue, it's all the rest I can't cope with. I'm due to take the acid on Thursday. Thanks
