Hi there!

Well, these could or could not be the side effects of fosamax; and could also be caused due to other medications that you are on or other primary conditions being treated for. I would suggest seeking a review with your treating doctor for a possible evaluation of the cause and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this helps.

Take care!

I have been telling the doctors that I've been having pain for a couple of years and they just told me it was normal. I found out after I fractured my ankle and went to the er

my doctor put me on nose spray calcitinis_salmon I use this every day use a different side of the nose each time.  cant tell much different,  I quit taking Lipitor for my cholesterol I think that was making my kegs weak.  there was a warning in tv that this could cause diabetis in women and heart problems.  my brother in law said it was destroying is muscles and he was getting weak.  I am doing better.  not soo many fainting spells. I hope this works maybe when I get my next bone density test there will be a difference.  mandy876
