So should I just put up with it see if it passes,or ring hospital and see if the have results of MRI do I ring thought my breast nurse or oncology who ordered at a loss as to who I can ring now that I'm out. Thanks girls Xx Hi Wilma I am having more or less the same issue as you. Have been crippled with back pain since before Christmas . My GP sent a letter to my oncologist about it suggesting that a bone scan or MRI might be appropriate. I have been waiting weeks and have just been notified that I have an appointment to see him next Wed. I've been on tamoxifen for about a month now and have just started to notice that my bones ache. Not too many hot flashes yet, so I guess that's good:)It's just the rest of my body that feels like it's aged 20 years already! I have been on femara and was switched to tamoxifen. I'm curious about other people and what they're doing for it. I had knee surgery almost 2 years ago and my knee actually throbs at times. It keeps me up most of the night even when I take something to sleep. I'm n pain meds for chronic back pain and that's not even helping the achiness. I also have been on pain meds for chronic back pain. I just logged in to try to find some alternative to the pain meds or maybe a different one. Im not on tamoxifen anymore so i dont have anyting to add to that - but if you find yourself having bad hot flashes see if your onc is ok with you taking a 400iu vitamin E capsule daily - my onc recommended it to me for the hot flashes and to my surprise it is really working - they are becoming less frequent & not nearly as intense! She's going to look into the exact name though since she doesn't take it anymore. I told her to make sure you don't taste fish all day from it!! Also, not everyone has these side effects, so please don't feel like you are the only one. My doctor and I tried effexor, but I had side effects with that and couldn't continue. Jean This seems to be my only side effect from Tomoxifen and it's quite bad at times. Dana Dana, Mine just started yesterday and already I had enough. *hugs* heather I don't want anyone else to be in pain but I have to say I was relieved when I read this post! I told my hubby last night that I will give it a month, making it 2 months on, and if it doesn't get better I'm going to have to make a decision. I have been on Femara for 5 months and I am miserable. Everything hurts..I stand up from sitting I can hardly move. One year ago before diagnosis I worked out everyday and walked..I am scared to move because I don't want to hurt. Hey gang, I'm not on Tamoxifen yet but from all that I've read on it, bone and joint aches are common. Hugs, Lorrie Well, I spoke to my aunt last night; she is on her second go round with tamoxifen, she says that it does get better as our body adjusts to it. It's not even the pain, I can handle pain, it's the throbbing achy feeling that doesn't stop even for you to sleep that is getting to me. I have an appt with my Oncologist next week about the pain. I've also read that symptoms can go away in a few months once your body adapts to the new meds. I wonder if glucosamine will work to aid in relief? Angela I haven't had bone pain with it, but noticed some light chest pain and those terrible hot flashes that keep us up at night. I do not want to stop taking it because I don't want to repeat the last year. I am so sorry all of you are experiencing the same side effects.

Tamoxifen (Nolvadex) has been used for over 40 years to treat hormone-receptor positive early, locally advanced and metastatic breast cancers. Learn about tamoxifen and other hormone therapies for metastatic breast cancer. Hormone receptor-positive breast cancers need estrogen and/or progesterone (female hormones produced in the body) to grow. Tamoxifen attaches to the hormone receptor in the cancer cell, blocking estrogen from attaching to the receptor. This slows or stops the growth of the tumor by preventing the cancer cells from getting the hormones they need to grow. Tamoxifen is a pill taken every day for 5-10 years. For premenopausal women, tamoxifen may be combined with ovarian suppression. The benefits from tamoxifen last long after you stop taking it.

If you are thinking about taking tamoxifen to reduce the chance that you will develop breast cancer, you should talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of this treatment.
