Hi ladies, just seen you both having the Anastrozole aches and pains!. I find paracetamol ok and at bedtime I have a slow release pain killer tramazole 100mg. Obviously not saying you should have this as it really is upto,your GP to help find right pain control drug for you, but having a slow release does help me get some sleep. I also have used for years now before my BC, a mattress topper, which is made of foam and looks like and egg box turned upside down. My chiropractor recommended it to me and if you have any joint pain it is helpful as it stops pressure on your joints. You can get them from disability supply type shops but I expect you can get on the internet now. They are pricey about £80-100 . I also find a topical cream like Voltarol or Ibuprofren gel really helpful as you just need a little to massage into area where pain is. I can't take oral equivalents so the gel is good for me. Also have special gel packs in freezer to put on hot achy joints. Do go and see your GP as they can monitor your pain and prescribe painkilling drugs if necessary. Don't suffer pain as it pulls you down mentally and that is not good when you are trying to recover from the dreaded BC . I wear good trainers a lot as they cushion my joints when walking. I was advised this by a Consultant years ago. Hope this helps a bit. Take care both of you, Katy.
