I started Prolia in Dec 2011 for osteoporosis. I had previously been on IV Boniva & Reclast for 5 yrs. I noticed some jaw discomfort in January which has become more frequent & intense. It now is accompanied by headaches & nausea. Any others have this side effect & what helps? I have not consulted my Dr as I only recently thought Prolia might be the reason for the pain.

I have same symptom variation. 5 yrs prior to Nov 2011 I started taking fosamex. Started taking prolia. In dec I had bad Neck, jaw, headache and hip (1 side only). I asked doc if prolix could be of ?. He didn't think so. They stopped after 2wks. May 2012 had 2nd inj. My sinus allergies have not bothered me for a long time but for the past week I lay down for note time sleep, but have baaaad pain in lower jaw/tooth with headache. I sat upright the pain leaves slowly. I just read your symptoms and I don't have a real answer, but I will chk with my tomorrow. Seems ironic.
Maybe some else has had similar experience? Maybe an answer?

Hey guys, Prolia can cause necrosis of the jaw. That means dying or disintegration of the jaw which the instructions said can come spontaneously. I just had my first Prolia injection 3 weeks ago and have jaw pain for the first time in my life. I'm now 60 years. So I am very concerned and called my doctor who wants to see me first thing on Monday morning.
Also I've got extreme irritation on my face, with sores on the outside and inside of my mouth, plus big red welts under two different medical patches that are extremely important for me to wear.
Also it's difficult to fully get the urine to come out. I think that I'm done, then 10 minutes later have more to pee, and then another 20 minutes, more comes out. uTI are more common with Prolia.
Never again will I get another injection because of these problems plus reading the instructions more thoroughly, it says that severe infections can occur needing hospitalization which another woman reported.
