I finished 8 rounds of chemo on June 1 and started on arimidex on June 8. I have more aches and pains now than I did when I was having chemo. Hands, legs and lower back all are achy and have sharp twinges of pain in them. It is hard to sleep or do anything because I feel so tired and uncomfortable. My oncologist said it can take 1-3 months for your body to get used to side effects of med but I cannot live like this for that long. I take gabapentin ,and extra strength tylenol or ibuprofen but they don't help. Has anyone else experienced this or have any helpful hints?
