  • RA Caused by Taking Prolia

    I was diagnosed with RA about a year after I started getting Prolia injections. Will the RA go away if I stop getting the Prolia injections or is the RA caused by the Prolia permanent?

    Hi, my name is Mary, I am 53 yr old white female originally from midwest. I was diagnosed with Crohns disease at 20 yeears
    old. Fibromyalgia came along at about 50 years of age and then RA right after that!

    Right now all I do is survive day to day. I can't quit my job b/c my job provides the healthcare to my family. I have a very sedentary job but mentally exhausting. Difficult since I am never rested.
