i am glad someone replied having the same problem..i havent been to see my gp as i have my last check up next month so will wait to see oncol.i keep just hoping it will go on its own but had it a few months now.like i said its not a pain fine until i lay down to sleep then i am reminded to turn over..thanks for replying.x
Yes, exactly as you describe. Only the one hip but the pain severe enough to keep me awake sometimes. I have only been on Tam for 3 months and did not connect it to the hip problem. I thought there was something wrong with my hip joint but it was so strange that I could walk miles and play golf without pain. My GP examined me and said the hip was fine and that the pain was probably just a soft tissue injury. The last couple of weeks I seem to have had a slight improvement, so I'm hoping! Such a relief to know what's causing it and that I'm not alone.
It might help to give our Helpline a call to talk this over. They will be able to offer you information and support. The opening times are 9-5 on weekdays and 10-2 on Saturdays. The number is 0808 800 6000
Very best wishes
i did ask this question but dont think it was really on the right thread..any way took tamoxifen for 4+ yrs a few months ago my hip started playing up but only at night when i lay on it in bed no other times like walking etc just when i lay on it.anyone else had this?also it looks like i have fluid on my hip bone but that isnt where it hurts its more like the bone in by buttock.. i have read a while back someone saying you can get fluid on the joints when taking tamoxifenx
