Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 month ago):
i am on a clinical trial, randomized, either zometa or xgeva. I believe that i receive xgeva, because prior to the start of the study, i had an infusion of zometa and had strong flu-like symptoms for 3 days. After starting the study, I have had no side effects for 8 months. after the last treatment, however, I experienced chills, low fever, extreme fatigue for 2 days. I wonder if i received zometa in error, or if chills etc. are symptoms for xgeva too.
From this study (2 months ago):
I have had one Prolia injection in January of 2014 for osteopenia. I also have Hasimoto's Thyroidosis which is in check. I take synthroid and cytomel. I have in the past six months developed lumps in my leg. They are tender, and getting larger. Skin is reddened. Could this be some sort of reaction to the Prolia injection?

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?

Can you answer these questions (what is this?):
- Is there a connection between prolia injections and transient global amnesia
I was given an injection of Prolia for osteoporsis 7 days before a necessary ER visit due to transient global amnesia. That day is a total blank. The three previous days are very sketchy. Is there anyone who has experienced a correlation between Prolia and amnesia?
- Prolia injection, then 6-8 weeks following, shingles and uti
First Prolia injection December, 2011, followed by Prolia injection every six months, last injection January, 2014. Developed Shingles late February 2012; still have constant pain, constant itching, 6 to 8 weeks following injection UTI. This past weekend has been the weekend from HELL.........low ...
- Has anyone experienced a loss of sense of taste on xgeva?
I have been on xgeva for almost a year now. About a month ago I suddenly lost my sense of taste. I am also experiencing an extremely painful stiff neck. My cancer markers went down dramatically and have inched back up the last two months.

I have taken Prolia for 2 years..4 injections. After the last 2 injections within 2 weeks I developed severe cystitis and had to go on course of antibiotics. I am fearful of continuing this medication as the last infection caused me to be treated at the emergency room.
