Question: Dear Doctor:

I am having symptoms consistent with having Reclast injection for osteoarthritis. Included: nausea without vomiting, shaking of hands, sudden sweating, dizziness, tiredness, involuntary quivering—and just not feeling very well.

I have a call in to my doctor. While waiting interminably for his call back, I would appreciate it if you could give me some ideas about treatment. I have searched on line but to no avail.

Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Symptomatic treatment is done.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The symptoms that you have are common after such an injection. These symptoms may begin during the first 3 days after you receive a dose of Reclast injection and may last 3 to 14 days. Only symptomatic treatment is given according to the severity of the symptoms. Rest mild pain killers plenty of oral fluids and anti emetic can help.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.

I have had 2 cervical spine surgeries. The 1st was on C4,5, and 6. The surgery resulted in C4 and T1 to bulge because of the plate. I had to have C4 fused to C5 and now I m scheduled to have exploratory surgery for pseudo-arthrosis of C4. I m now having pain just above the middle of my spine and lower spine. My feet are feeling cold and prickly. Would my symptoms be related to my past surgeries and the pseudo-arthrosis? I am on SSDI AND CAN NOT AFFORD TO PAY.....

I have used skelaxin occasionally. I also have osteoarthritis for which I use a tins unit for pain management. The familial tremor is also in my family. Yesterday I had an episode where I lost muscle control, could not Stan or walk and had full body tremors. I had used the tins for 36 hours and taken a skelaxin. The ER gave me 3 of Ativan over four hour before the shaking subsided. My pcp will work me up for Parkinson s and ms. I m 60. What do you think?
