Yes, finger pain and Letrozole...
ive been on it for 9 months now. The finger pain started after about four months and hasn’t calmed down. I literally cannot bend my fingers without severe pain when I wake up in the morning, and after a few mins gently squeezing a squeezy ball (for arthritis) I can get them moving. But they are really stiff all day. I went to see a hand specialist in Feb who did lots of tests and concluded it was the letrozole. I’m now discussing with my Oncologist the idea of a trial switch to Tamoxifen to see if that’s better.
Hi, I've been on it for a year this month. Managing well but having similar symptoms to yourself. Also joints stiffen if I sit. I'm a bit like a marionette when I first get up, but thankfully it does wear off. I've resorted to deep baths with Epsom salts again, and this seems to help. The Ibroprufin is also handy to have - so I guess I'll just wobble along! Hope you get sorted. X
That sounds really painful, I'm glad you've made an appointment to see what they can do.
If our nurses can also help in the meantime, feel free to call them on 0808 800 6000.
