This is the second time I have taken this. The first time I had a severe headache for about 3 days straight. Did not take the second shot. I let my doctor talk me into taking the shot again this year. Have had severe headaches, bone and joint pain, a feeling of lightheadedness, unable to sleep and rest at night. Will not take this medicine again.

One shot and I have had 3 upper respiratory infections, a strep infection of the ear, skin rash on ear, hip and leg pain, back pain. I will never take the drug again. Not worth the side effects.

I have had 2 injections of Prolia. Last month I begin to have pain in my upper right side along w/a dully ache, foggy feelings, arm pain, random headaches, fatigue, chills, and low back pain. I have had 3 rounds of blood tests, upper/lower CT scans, cardiac check up, etc. and nothing shows up. I believe I am having multiple side effects from the Prolia shots. I am due for another one and do not ... Show Full Comment
