Default Actonel PAIN!

I am a healthy, active 53-yr-old woman.I've been taking Actonel for 6 weeks and until now the only side effect I've had has been a little stomach queasiness, which was tolerable. Four days ago,however, I developed some lower back pain and muscle pain from my waist down into my thighs. Each day the pain has gotten worse until today I can barely walk. Just shifting my weight causes extreme pain. I will not take any more of this drug. However, does anyone have any idea how long this side effect may last? I will be calling my doctors for help with the pain tomorrow (Monday), although I don't know if they will believe me that Actonel is the cause. I feel as though I am suddenly crippled. I would appreciate any input you can give me.
