    Received Prolia in March 2016 and felt fine for 3 wks. Started with numbness and tingling in face, hands and fingers. Started on one side of body and thought I was having a TIA.

    I have had two prolia shots over the last 7 months. There were no side effects from the first shot; however, the second shot approximately 4 weeks ago has caused tremendous muscle pain and soreness in my arms, legs and lower back. I am wondering if this pain is permanent or will it fade with time. If it doesn't fade, I will not be taking any more shots.

    48 hours after 1st injection developed Herpes infection which I have NOT HAD FOR 20 years! Too much of a coincidence for it not to be caused by the Prolia. NEVER AGAIN!

    I was diagnosed with Polymyalgin Rheumatica (PMR) because I am allergic to the antibody in Prolia. PMR is a very painful auto-immune disease. I cannot have any drug ending in "umab." This happened after the first shot.
