    I had my first infusion 2 weeks ago. The reaction I had within 12 hours of the procedure was horrible. My entire spine felt like it was going to break. After 2 weeks, I still have severe headaches every day, chills, and a very stiff neck. The dr. says this is unusual and I attribute the excess pain to my spinal stenosis condition. I will not take the drug again, even if it helps my osteo.

    My second dose of Zometa caused a severe allergic reaction of hives at the injection site and other body parts. I have bone and joint pain,especially in my hip.My right side is very weak. This drug has been my worst nightmare. Even after 6 months, the pain persist. I've contacted FDA concerning this drug.
