Have been on Prednisone for 1 1/2 years for PMR, a painful autoimmune disease. My recent bone scan showed severe osteoporosis with T scores as low as -4.7 and -3.3 in my spine and hip. I am 63 and I don't dare not to take Prolia. I found a few programs online with natural supplements with Strontium which I have been taking for 2 months. Everything I read about severe osteoporosis is frightening especially when my doctors insist that I should take the prolia . Side effects of Prolia indicate pain in muscles and joints which is the same symptoms of PMR so I am worried I may be more susceptible to Prolia's side effects.
