I have been having troubles with my legs being painful and weak enough to collapse. I was diagnosed as having vitamin d deficiency. My doctor has been concerned about my inflammation levels being high and thinks I may have Polymyalgia Rheumatica. She has prescribed prednisolone and alendronic acid. After investigating the alendronic acid I am not sure that I am happy to take it. Does everyone who takes steroids have alendronic acid?
