My mom took Forteo in 2005-06 and has been experiencing

Customer Question

Customer: My mom took Forteo in 2005-06 and has been experiencing terrible joint pain in all of her joints ever since. She is completely disabled now, unable to stand, or to move her arms effectively (can't eat on her own). She is considered "Full assist". Tests show severe arthritis, but no osteoporosis whatsoever. Could her issues be from the Forteo? Is there any litigation?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Because all of her joints are bone on bone and have eaten away most of the cartiledge I thought the problem may be because her bones were strengthened too much by the Forteo - or that the Forteo somehow made her get the severe arthritis.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $36) to post your type of question to Legal Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. We can help you for less if you're not in a rush. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: I am willing to wait a bit - It's been a long time since her issues started. I am sure even a day or two wouldn't hurt. Do I stay on the chat?
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
