Avatar n tn I must add that I take Actonel and I have heard that people can have jaw problems with this medication. I can go to bed with it very loud and wake up the next day with hardly any noise at all..I can go for two or three days without noise and then two or three days with noise.

It means the jaw bone dies and often starts when you have a dental treatment like an extraction. so you need to be on top of dental things, I go every three months for a cleaning. I think you are also at greater risk from a certain type of broken hip. I took the med for 2 years, which is the sort of benchmark for myeloma treatment.
469901 tn?1276567223 Even my ankles hurt a little. I’ve been having bad problems with my jaw and ear at night and I suspect it’s Temporal Mandible Disorder which I read is a precursor sometimes. I’m holding out hope that the pain is a fluke. I am in major denial. ***Long but please read: *** The real reason I am here is my father. He was a 1 in a billion success story. He was diagnosed with RA as a child. I was told at age 4 his legs started hurting and he couldn’t play with the other kids.
Avatar m tn I fired him needless to say and have another doctor lined up but still haven't had the implant, the issue now being the Fosamax I take which can cause jaw issues when you do deep dental surgery.
