Bone pain with Copaxone?

I have been dealing with various bone pain in feet, hips and knees for about the last 3 years. Has anyone else experienced bone pain? I have had many X-rays and MRIs and nothing significantly wrong can be found besides my MS. My neuro says pain is not related to my MS. I saw ortho last week and he asked if it could be a side effect of Copaxone. This thought never occurred to me ...
