After having been on Iressa for 7 months, I have now switched to a Carboplatin/Alimta regime every 3 weeks. Although I had a little bit of joint stiffness in my fingers prior to Chemo, which I put down to advancing years, it has become really bad since going onto to the IV chemo. All my joints are now really stiff - knees, hands & shoulders are the worst.
I mentioned this to my oncologist and he said he wasn't aware that this was a side effect of the chemo but I can't see any other explanation.
Has anyone else had this problem?
