Hi there
Thank you for your question.
I am sorry to hear about your problem.
Yes, as a matter of fact these are side effects of forteo that you are experiencing.
You should mention these side effects to your treating doctor and ask him to change to another medication.
It is certainly possible to stop this and change to another medication that you will be able to tolerate better.
Let me know if you have more questions.
Kind regards
