Headaches etc

Hi all


I have been on Letrozole/Femara since May and have only recently started getting rotten headaches. I know this can be a side effect but after this long? Anyone else had this?


Also started to feel more and more fatigued. Yes I went back to work 8 weeks ago so this could be a contributing factor but feel rotten.  Anyone any suggestions. I have been discharged by the Oncologist as I am a very low risk. Trip to GP methinks

Just a thought are you taking in enough fluids in a day as it could be dehydration that is contributing to your headaches?
