I've been on hydroxycarbamide for about 3 months.
Over the last 5-6 weeks I have had really bad painful aching muscles in my back.
I work standing up all day and have done this job for last 18months. Over the last few weeks my back starts to really ache after standing at my till for a couple of hours. This aching build up to bad pain in my muscles and by the end of the day I am in so much pain I want to cry.
Can it be the hydroxycarbamide causing this??? My platelets have dropped to 400 and my RBC has also dropped.
I am also experiencing tingling in my arms fingers and legs.
My main concern are the muscles in my back. I have to work.
If it is the hydroxycarbamide is there an alternative treatment. I also take aspirin.
