Lupron is notorious for causing permanent bone pain! Please stop taking it immediately. Lupron does not cure endo. Please Google Lupron Petition to read about what happens to people who take Lupron Depo. Good luck and feel better.

I am 29 years old and I am on the Lupron Depot shot. Right before I am to recieve the second the second shot of the Lupron I had become engulfed in pain which seemed to be in my muscles and joints. I just had an M.R.I done to rule out M.S and blood test to rule out any other sicknesses. I have a strong theory that this shot has caused this additional pain and the stress of the pain that I had before the shot to help with endometriosis will come back if I stop taking it. The guestion that I ask is, "Which pain is worth living with the rest of my life and what I can I do to feel like a normal 29 year old?" Stiffness in the joints and pain moving around or constant sciatica along with cramping from endometriosis is a horrible way to live either way I want to know if there is anyone out there that would know anything about this and if there is anything I could do to help ease the pain so I can go back to work and live life.

From this study (3 months ago):
within the last six months I have experienced achy joints and muscles. My scalp breaks out in a rash I have itchy spots on chest and upper abdomen. My B-12 is low and white blood count was low. I had one doctor treat me for one month for Lyme disease with no help, and I have a lot of the side effects from Lupron

I believe that Lupron does cause Multiple Myeloma as well as other bone damage. The news is out today verifying the bone damage from a reliable research source, but does anyone else out there have a story where they started taking Lupron or another ADT and immediately or shortly thereafter came down with Multiple Myeloma?
