Comment:
i had one dose of reclast. My symptoms scared me. I had a headache, treated with tylenol. My joints were screaming the second day. My jaw locked. The third day my eyeballs swelled to the point I couln't close my eyes. I am due in one month for the second dose. I also am hae]ving bone density done in two days. Depending what it shows determines if I go through with reclast again.
