Docetaxol aching knees and hips and painful toes and finger tips

Hi all, 


I had my last  Docetaxol 3 weeks ago and am having trouble with painful toes and fingertips, also have really painful hips and knees.   Can anyone suggest anything that can help or how long this can last for.  Any hints and tips greatly appreciated as I am due to start radiotherapy in 2 weeks and I am hoping this will have faded by then (or is that wishful thinking).


Thank you in advance,
