Hi everyone, I am from Miami, FL and two months ago I began tamoxifen - I had been on exemestane and had terrible joint pain. Recently, I have developed little bumps, some red, some not, on my right arm and shoulder. I also have tingling down the arm which feels like someone is squeezing it. I have been to the dermatologist a few times; he has biopsed it, giving me prednisone, but it still persists. My oncologist pooh poohs that this condition has anything to do with Tamoxifen. It seems like I'm not the only one suffering from the itches and ongoing discomfort. Yes, I agree, we're lucky that we have successfully been through the cancer surgery, but the after effects of some of these drugs are terrible. Next week I have an appointment with my primary doctor. I'll wait to hear what he says. Thanks.
