Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.Paget's Disease (PD) is quite rare and most doctors are not comfortable in dealing with this.It would be prudent to discuss this with your PCP/Doctor and ask him to recommend a referral to the nearest teaching hospital or tertiary care hospital which will have the resources and experience in dealing with the PD.Oral and injectable drugs are used for treating this,there may be other problems which can easily be investigated at a bigger hospital.
