Fosamax Back Pain Causes and Reviews


If you've ever groaned, "Oh, my aching back!", you are not alone. Back pain is one of the most common medical problems, affecting 8 out of 10 people at some point during their lives. Back pain can range from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp pain. Acute back pain comes on suddenly and usually lasts from a few days to a few weeks. Back pain is called chronic if it lasts for more than three months.

Most back pain goes away on its own, though it may take awhile. Taking over-the-counter pain relievers and resting can help. However, staying in bed for more than 1 or 2 days can make it worse.

If your back pain is severe or doesn't improve after three days, you should call your health care provider. You should also get medical attention if you have back pain following an injury.

Treatment for back pain depends on what kind of pain you have, and what is causing it. It may include hot or cold packs, exercise, medicines, injections, complementary treatments, and sometimes surgery.

Fosamax Back Pain Reviews

Thu, 18 Aug 2011

I have had gastric bypas and would like to know if I can take Fosamax.

Sun, 26 Jul 2009
I took Actonel for 2 months and the psorasis in my scalp got out of control. My Doctor could find no connection. I have been on Fosamax for one month now and the same thing is happening. Have there been other reports of this side effect?
Fri, 10 Oct 2008
After being on Fosamax for approximately four and one half years suddenly I developed severe medial bilateral knee pain. Have pain when walking down and up stairs. I have NO history of arthritis, no inflammation or redness at the location of pain. I stopped taking the medication three months after experiencing these symptoms in Jan o8 and still suffer these effects 10 months later. I took this medication post menopausely prophylactically a 35mg weekly dose to prevent bone loss. I understand Fosamax has a half life of 10 years. Does the pain eventually go away or is this permanent damage?
Wed, 06 May 2009
Can Fosamax cause a drop in blood pressure? Can it worsen pre-existing anaemia. I've taken 4 weekly 70mg tablets and am feeling dizzy and week with loss of sensation in my fingers and joint pains. As I have suffered a year ago from kidney failure and tubulointerstitial nephritis I am concerned that I may go back into kidney failure due to the Fosamax.
Mon, 23 Nov 2009
I have been using Fosamax for years for osteopenia. I have good teeth with1 root canal. I am wooried about it affecting my teeth. Is taking it a major risk for teeth? Is there a better way to prevent bone loss? I am 64, good health and use weight trainig( 5'4" white )
Tue, 20 Jul 2010
