  • Pain in the neck and arthritis after taking generic fosamax
    I started taking Generic Fosamax about six months ago and last week i had a terrible neck pain and spasm. I went to my accupunturist and he did accupunture and massage, but the pain did not go away. Later that week, I noticed that I had a lot of pain every time I flexed my left knee, and later that same day it started to sweell, like in people who have rheumatoid arthritis.

  • Recently diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis. I took Fosamax back in 2005 for a year and wondering if I may have inadvertently created the stenosis situation. I stopped taking because there was no change in my bone density and I had heard there were issues with Fosamax.
