My mum has been taking alendronic acid once a week for just short of 4 months.
We we have only just linked her that her deteriorating situation could be down to this medication.
She has severe muscle/joint/bone pain, aches and weakness in her arms, shoulders and legs which has progressed so much that she struggles to move. Painkillers are not making any difference.
She initially had moderate shoulder pain that the GPs were and are still investigating but it has become so worse since she was diagnosed with osteoporosis and put on AA.
She has stopped taking the AA (it’s been a week) so assuming these issues are related is there a time after which she should start to see an improvement?
I’ve read lots of posts from people on here with similar experiences but not many follow ups to say whether they’ve been resolved. I would like to be able to give her some hope that if connected (which I’m convinced it is after reading the forums) that she will soon see an improvement.
