Was curled up in the fetal position last week with awful joint pain everywhere when it dawned on me that I did NOT have to deal with this. I cannot remember when I have not had joint pain? A year maybe? More or less? And it is getting worse.
I stopped the Tamoxifen and Dr Swanson is having me start Aromasin . She wholeheartedly agrees with stopping Tamoxifen if it is causing me such distress. I use a mail-away pharmacy for the estrogen blockers as it is much cheaper so will not be starting the Aromisan for another week or so.
Dr S said the joint pain should be gone since I stopped the "T" but that is not the case. If this pain continues into next month I will get checked for arthritis or fibromyalgia. Call it what you want....it is a pain in the ass.
But it is not stopping me from enjoying my life. It is just slowing me down. lol
