I started Ibrutinib a month ago and all is OK . I had a bout of very high fever and received IV antibiotics.
But from time to time I have a really very very strong stabing pain starting in my sternum (chest) bone and radiating to my right shoulder. Had a chest CT, heart echogramm and elektrocardiogram. Everything fine.
As no regular analgetic helps my hemato-oncologist prescribed Targin tablets (opioidal stuff). The pain lasts sometimes for 2 days and sometimes for 20 minutes.
Did anyone encounter such a phenomenon ?
I assume it is related to the Ibrutinib and to joint pains, but my onco does not think so. He will consult with a chest surgeon .
Thank you for your help.
