I have joint pain due to hormone therapy medication I have to take for breast cancer. The main effect is mildly in the wrists, ankle and knees. Recently though my back and hip became quite painful. Wednesday I had a full body bone scan to make sure it wasn’t metastatic BC. I was convinced it would be arthritis. Nurse rang this morning after MDT and scan was completely clear which is good news. It looks now it’s another joy that the medication is sharing with me.
Told nurse I didn’t want to keep taking paracetamol if I can help it. She said quite a few women got relief from cod liver or fish oil or glucosamine. Sadly these look a no no for me as it can cause Ectopics or AF episodes in some people. Not sure I want to risk it?
Does anyone know of any joint ease that is kind to Afib please. I’m fine with ibuprofen gel but can’t take it orally.
