Was diagnosed with ET last year at the age of 45 and started on daily aspirin and Hydroxyurea 5 times a week due to having 2 blood clots. Since increasing to 5 times a week I've had pain in the centre and lower of my back. It's one of those pains that just won't go away, painkillers are not helping, the only thing that eases it slightly is a warm bath and hot water bottle. I'm wondering if this is a side effect from the Hydroxyurea and if anyone else has this? I've mentioned to my consultant but she says she's never heard of this.
Any help appreciated!!!
