I have been on Tamoxifen for about two years now. My leg cramps have been getting worse, and last night's pain was excrutiating. It started in the front of my right leg, but then quickly became pain in both legs, from halfway below the knee down to my toes. I was afraid to try to walk anywhere because I thought my legs/feet would give out. It eventually went away, but then I was left with full body shakes for about 10 minutes. My leg pains usually start after I've gone to bed, but sometimes they hit in the early evening when I'm stretched out on the couch. I am going to have to talk to my doctor at my next appointment. If these leg cramps continue, (as well as hot flashes all day/night) I might have to decide if it's still worth it to continue taking the Tamoxifen. Has anyone else stopped taking the medicine? Any thoughts about stopping the medicine?
