Took my first Prolia shot 4 days ago. I am having severe jaw pain. Most people can hear my jaw moving and it feels and sounds like it is cracking. I am going to report to FDA and of course make an appointment with my dentist. I just finished treatment for breast cancer and have to take an aromatase inhibitor for 5 years which causes
weakining of bones which is why they prescribed Prolia.
I am just beginning but I will never take another dose of Prolia.

HI! Very sorry that you're in pain and miserable.

There have actually been many complaints about Prolia causing these types of issues and many people are refusing to continue on it.

Hopefully, it's just some inflammation or something from it and not a more serious problem.

Can you post back after you see the dentist and let mw know how it goes?

Dear Wilburbudsmom: I am so sorry that you are going through all this. I am also a b/c survivor and am on Extresame (an aromasin inhibitor) for the next 5 yrs. As it is in 2002 I had extensive spinal surgery, 2007 hip replacement and has Osteoporosis. I would of thought that I would not be a good candidate for Prolia but it was recommended by my onco. Almost immediately after the shot I started having jaw pain and when I chew my jaw goes from side to side like a cow instead of up and down like a human. There is such a loud popping sound that you can hear it. I've lived with the pain in my back and muscles from being on the cancer med but now I cant describe the kind of pain I am in it is excruciating. I am only 59yrs young and feel like I should be in my 80's. Im also experiencing complete numbness in my fingertips and because I paint this is extremely upsetting to me as I cant hold a paint brush without dropping it. The hot flashes during menopause where bad but these hot flashes are horrible. My bosses have noticed the difference in me because of the pain from the shot. I wish you only the best and would like to find out more about how your coming along. I don't know who to contact who makes the Prolia shot but they will just deny it anyway.
