hi Teresa..I have just switched from aromasin because I was miserable..its been about a month and a half now on arimidex..and I know exactly how you feel! Some days I feel like I am 90! I have alot of muscle and joint pain..have tried my other meds to help with the pains..I am going for pt. because I now have plantar fasciitis and it seems to help with alot of the muscle pain..I do the exercises that they give me, on both legs..I am also taking elavil and relefen, which is an anti-inflammatory..My biggest concern is while I have to take all these other drugs to countact the pains that I have..what other side effects will I have..it isnt easy..I am 4 yrs from diagnosis, and once I finish my 5 yr drug therapy..I honestly think that I will not do any more, no matter what they come up with! I hope you can or do exercise, I believe that you will feel even stiffer if you dont.
Have you tried any of the other AI's, you know each of them are made a little different, you might just have some success on one of the others..aromasin or femara.
