Having taken Alendronic acid for more than one year, I experienced a lot of pain between my shoulder blades and indeed difficulty in sometimes swallowing. This concerned me a great deal. After having a Dexa scan to assess my current bone density, the technician remarked (after I had told her about the pain between my shoulder blades) that this was a common side effect from taking bisophosphates. I told my Doctor that in spite of an increase in my bone density I had decided to come off of the Alendronic Acid and would also just take one Calcichew tablet per day. I feel better for it, but do sometimes even get some nausea (I understand too much calcium can cause this problem. I would advise anyone with similar problems to talk to their Doctor to see if they can check if they have kidney problems etc., as taking Calcichew can apparently be bad for your kidneys too! :cry:
