Comment:
It has been 4 miserable & painful days since my Reclast infusion and I can't believe I didn't research this medicine myself before. When I asked about side effects I was told the only thing anyone mentioned was flu like symptoms and some bone pain. What I've experienced is far worse than flu symptoms.

Had severe pain in all my joints from neck to toes within one day of injection, and has lasted for days, especially my bad knees. Taking OC pain pills has provided some relief.
