mimi on Jun, 22, 2014:
I had 2 Prolia injections. And developed RA after my second injection. The doctor tells me it's not related--but I am convinced it was the trigger for RA and my body to start attacking my joints
Jacki on Apr, 29, 2014:
I had three Prolia injections in a twelve month period. I have osteopenia not osteoperosis. I have now been diagnosed with RA. I've asked several doctors if there is a connection and been told "no". Is there any proof to the contrary?
