Default Actonel - pain

I and 52 with osteoporosis in the hips and osteopenia in the the spine. Took fosamax for one year and some improvment made. Fosamax caused bone and muscle pain but Doctor said nothing could be done about it. Switched to Actonel and have taken it for one year. I suffer every day from pain in my back, stiffness all over. When I lay down or sit it takes time to stand up - I feel like an old lady. I never felt like this before taking the medication. I have always been active - snowboarding, golf, hiking, camping and only when I started this medication I started complaining like an old crabby lady. I feel robbed but I won't give up. I still golf, snowboard, camp, hike, etc. but not free from pain, stiffness and generally not feeling well. I hope these types of medication improve someday so that there are no bad side effects.
