I am so thankful for this site. My GYN (dr.) has been urging me to try Fosamax for a few years. I resisted because in general I prefer the more "natural" route.
After first dose, I woke up at night because when I opened and closed my right hand, the knuckles would click, almost like they were coming out of joint and then back into place ... very wierd! I must have done it in my sleep and woke up because it felt so strange. The knuckles in my right hand ache. After the second dose, I noticed that now my left hand knuckles are getting stiff. And I mentioned to my daughter the other day that my knees feel stiff and my forearm bone on each arm feels like I clunked it against something.
Before Fosamax I had none of these bone/achy/pain issues. Call me naive, but I was thinking "maybe this is my bones densifying and this is what it feels like". Another side effect I am noticing is numbness and ache coming down from under my right arm, through my right elbow, into my right hand to the pinky. Sometimes my right hand knuckles around the pinky and ring finger feel "mushy". Now that I have read all of the postings, you can bet that I am pitching out all of these darn pills! My instinct told me not to take them, but I tried anyway. I already have TMJ and soft teeth - you can bet I don't want to start up anything in that area!!
Check out Kevin Trudeau's work. He is on the cutting edge of busting the big Pharma and FDA.
Somebody needs to hold these people accountable!
Thank you for posting & God bless.
