new to Forteo
I am a 47 year old female that was diagnosed with Osteoporosis when I was 30.
In the past 2 years I have fractured both of my hips within 6 months of each other, my right side has undergone 3 surgeries. both feet have broke, my left tiblia, etc...
I started using Forteo about 2 weeks ago because all other treatment failed.
I started to have side effects right away. I have no appetite, my body aches all over, slight dizzieness, lack of engergy, Prior to taking Forteo I have daily cronic tension headaches.
Insomnia I had after having brain surgery 6 years ago and I am affraid to take Forteo at bed time because I only get 3-4 hours sleep as it is.(read somewhere that insomnia is also a side effect)
I also have other illiness which I won't bore you with.
My Doctor's advice is to try for 3-4 weeks and the side effects may go away.
If anyone has some advice that might help with these side effects I would be very greatfull
