Re: Aching joints

Ask to try a different brand of letrozole, the coatings are different apparently. Two types made me very stiff but I take the accord brand and that is fine.

Re: Aching joints

My headache stayed for 8 days until I started to drink more. By doubling my water intake (weak Ribena actually) my headache gradually eased over a week. I am on my 3rd packet and if I have a 'dry' day, the headache returns. I haven't felt particularly sick, I take it as I get into bed at night, so maybe I sleep through it. I feel dreadfully tired, but mostly can't get to sleep, unless it's kipping on the sofa and missing something on telly I really wanted to watch. The joint pain is annoying as I don't know which bit is going to hurt when I get up in the morning. My bone scan results should be done by first week in August, they take ages. I am also on vit D tablets, (started before C) have been for more than a year as my tiredness was really bad and I couldn't take my poor dog for a 5 min walk, so that might improve it a bit for you. Rads are fine, keep slapping the cream on 🙂 xxxx

Re: Aching joints

For me the horrible aching joints kicked in at about four to five weeks after starting on Letrozole. They kept me awake at night - had to get up to take  Neurofen - but they eased off after two or three  weeks.  I have also had the headaches together with feeling a bit sick.   The bad headaches eased off but I still get a slight headache every few days.   The aching joints made me feel like I was about 100 and my 92 year old mother in law seemed positively sprightly compared to me, but it certainly got a lot better in quite a short time and now I am fine with just the occasional twinge.   Only advice I can give is keep on with the painkillers and rest if you need to.   If things don't improve get to your GP for stronger painkillers - I think some people have Amitriptyline which is an antidepressant but is also used as a painkiller at a different dose.    My bone scan showed I have slightlythinning bones so I am going to have to start on calcium supplements and Vitamin D.  Also my cholesterol is raised and if it doesn't improve on a low fat diet I will have to take a statin, so will soon be rattling at this rate.  I hope things get better for you soon.
