Had 1st Reclast last year with no side effects. Had 2nd this past Tuesday and I am so sick. Nausea, very weak and tired, chills and fever and diarrhea. No bone pain. Flu like symptoms.

5 years of this medication and still have bone pain. I have not seen any changes. Would stop but I am afraid my bones would be even weaker and could cause breakage :(
