I suffer dreadfully with dry eyes. I wonder if this is connected to my osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.

I have been taking medication first Fosamax then Actonel; both have caused stomach problems and chest pains, bloating and plenty of unwanted gas and muscle pains. I have been advised to now go on injection Prolia but after reading side effects, I have decided to go of all medications. I will self-medicate with a mixture of calcium and magnesia in pure vinegar; I am over side effects of other medications.
