Default Is it the Actonel?

I started actonel last October and it's been downhill ever since. A couple of weeks after my first once a week 35mg, I developed severe joint pain in most of my joints. It has continued ever since. My joints are tender to touch. In January my shoulder froze up and I couldn't move it for a few months. Now I have knee pain and find myself limping on some days. The joint pain is continual, steady in some, transient in others. I was put on this drug so it would help my bones, meanwhile my bones are getting worse with each passing day. The tests I've had so far are coming back okay. I haven't had a bone density since last October but I don't need another one to tell my bones are getting worse. I am very concerned about actonel. I keep complaining to my doctor as I feel it may have something to do with the way I'm feeling. He said to boost my calcium and remain on Actonel. I would go off of it on my own, but now I think what if it's not the actonel and I get even worse. I don't know what to do or what to think, I never in my life had so much pain where my bones are concerned, but it's very coincidental that this whole mess started when I started Actonel. May God help me!
