I am supposed to get my injection of Prolio in two weeks. I am 59 with osteoporosis in my back and hips, osteopenia elsewhere. Boniva caused muscle and back pain, and I couldn't tolerate it well. Now i'm reading that Prolio may do the same thing and worse! I'm especially concerned about more pain and skin problems, since I have always had sensitive skin. I know I have to do something, but I would like to hear from others who have taken Prolio. Thanks.View Thread
I noticed the same burning sensation in my upper back about three weeks before my second Prolia injection. Like you, it also went away after the injection. I am due to receive my third injection shortly, and the burning has reappeared. I saw my rheumatologist a few days ago for the pre-injection bloodwork, and she had no explanation for the burning. She suggested as long as it disappears after the injection, it is not a big deal. Interesting that I'm not the only one experiencing it, however!View Thread
