Prolia side effects

I have fibromyalgia and have noticed worsening if muscle bone and joint pain since getting 2 shots of Prolia. I try exercising but wind up in extreme pain from just 10 minutes on the elliptical machine. The pain is so bad it does not allow me to sleep at night. 
With fogto I was always sore afterwards but not to this degree! 
I am due for an injection in April and reconsidering doing it. 
Anyone else experience worsening of fibromyalgia pain?

    i was wondering what your doctor had to say about your symptoms after the injections?
    and also wondering if you told doctor about pain and limitations with elliptical machine?
    they may be helpful with doctor treating you and/or diagnosing you.

    From what I read Prolia is used to treat osteoporosis. Is the mainly what the injections are for?
    I agree with Sue, your doctor needs to be informed of any changes of your pain.
    I also have Fibro, was diagnosed over 20 years ago. It is not easy to deal with.
    Please keep us posted.

    need to call him to discuss. I have been dealing with Painful RFA so I had to put this discussion on the back burner.

    Hi mela14

    I'm sorry your RFA has been that painful. But I'm glad you are back on the forum.

    If you go to the top right hand corner of this page in the search engine and type RFA, there are some good articles on this subject. There are also older discussions from members, one in particular that kept a diary.

    That is something I have always done before an upcoming doctor's appointment, keep a daily journal of my life and the pain. This way the doctor has a better understanding of what you are going through.

    Good Luck and take care. Please keep us posted.
