Hi, I just started carbo/taxel this week and have been suffering with joint aches and pains particularly my ankles and back. Feels like I have a bad case of the flu! Paracetamol doesn't seem to have any effect but iburofen is a bit better. My onoclogist mentioned getting stronger painkillers from the chemist but when my husband went to buy some they would only sell him aspirin! Just wondered what other people took and whether to just get my GP to prescribe it.
