    Arimidex for Osteoporosis; Breast cancer

    Take Arimidex for exactly 2 years. After the initial common complaints such as muscle weakness and joint pain, which have clearly improved over time, I’m currently in good shape, almost 20 km cycling every day. To my great astonishment, a few days ago, strong muscle pains at the front of my thighs were used as soon as I walked quickly, climbing stairs or driving a car (and pressing the pedals). The pain is not symmetrical, begins in one leg, becomes almost unbearable, then gradually diminishes and begins in the other. I can not explain this fact and now I’m afraid for the upcoming ski season …

    Side effects: Muscle aches; Joint pain

    Arimidex for Overweight

    After a breast cancer surgery followed by radiotherapy, I take since 6 Mon. Arimidex. In this time I have gained 5 kg, I work on it, which proves to be very difficult. Joint pain that affects the whole body is very strong. Hips, shoulder joints, arms, wrists, feet. In a lecture Prof. Beuth, University of Cologne, presented the natural remedy Equizym = mixture of lentil protein, pineapple, papaya and sodium selenite as a complementary medical remedy that can be used in certain anticancer complaints. For 4 weeks I take 3 tablets daily and after 1 week, the joint symptoms improved significantly. But I still can not expect any heavier loads on my body. I think this is an alternative. The heatwaves and sweats that have been affecting me for 4 years are being treated with the drug venlafaxine, but have strengthened again with the use of Arimidex. Hereby you can live. What else do we have for an alternative?

    Arimidex for Metastasis; Breast cancer

    In the first year hardly any complaints, since the side effects of chemo and radiation were still very much in the foreground. Since 2.5 years, osteoporosis, 15 kg weight gain, muscle and joint pain, very dry mucous membranes and water retention in the entire body. I will end the pack yet take and stop 3 months earlier. I think that it will not be so tragic and I can continue to survive. Sincerely, Rosie

    Arimidex for Breast cancer

    I am taking Arimidex and Zoladex in my 2005 breast cancer surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments. L-thyrox suppose I am thyroid op 2002 without any significant side effects. If taking Arimidex and Zoladex I have sweats – several times a day. The pain in the joints, especially on the feet and fingers, is particularly troublesome, and the hips and knees also cause problems. My skin is showing increasingly blemishes and more impurities than before (especially pitted grains on the face). A weight gain of about 16 kg I can note, but perhaps because of the fact that during the treatment of cancer other things were more important to me than to pay attention to my diet, besides, sweets \\\ are such a good comforter \ \\. This problem is now relativized again, as I try with Weight Watchers to get the problem under control. The decrease is much slower than decreases before therapy. Special interpersonal problems cause the loss of libido – almost completely – besides, I suffer from vaginal dryness and corresponding irritability. Mood swings, listlessness are limited.

    Arimidex for Breast cancer

    Strong joint pain, finger stiffening in the morning, I get to move through. The pain is sometimes so strong that I think the flesh falls off my bones when I’m on the move, hurting my bones and knees so bad I’m afraid I can not make my way home. The knees hurt the most. I was now four weeks for the cure but no relief noticed. Often I play with the thought of discontinuing the drug. Arimidex severely limits my daily routine and my quality of life. If I sell Arimidex, is there a risk that the cancer will come back ?? This is a devil stuff, with Tamoxifan I came out better. I have to take Arimidex for another two years. Medication for bone pain does not help, eg. Diclofinak 50 or Prazitamol Greetings to all who suffer with.

    Side effects: Pain; Joint pain
