Discussions that mention femara

Cancer: Breast board

I have been on estrogen inhibitors for almost three years (femara then aromasin). I developed terrible joint pain along with other side effects. The joint pain got worse and now I have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis. I could hardly walk with the pain in my right knee and the doctor diagnosed a baker's cyst. I received a cordisone shot and got relief. Now I have developed another baker's cyst on my left knee. I am really tired of this joint and knee pain because it really effects my quality of life. I never had any signs of arthritis before the estrogen inhibitors and had none in the family.
Could they have caused this? My doctor is not very sympethetic.
