I was on Tamoxifen for two years and had itching, dry skin, and occasional terrible leg cramps at night. My doctor switched me to Exemestane (Aromasin) and now I have joint pain, tingling fingers, and insomnia. The joint pain and fatgue was disabling, and finger tingling disconcerting, so my doctor did a vitamin B test and found out I was low. Ive gotten shots to bring it back up and the joint pain is a lot better now.
I had severe joint pain on Aromasin and my oncologist found out I was vitamin B deficient. Im taking weekly B12 shots and they are helping although my hands arent 100%.
We have tried about 8 medications with none helping and only Clonezepam helping a little with anxiety and some muscle tension. We recently attended a forum led by the Dystonia Research Foundation at Northwestern Hospital in Chicago. Dr. Cynthia Comella of Rush Medical Center showed a presentation which listed many drugs and their efficacy for dystonia patients. Sadly most didn't work well. Please contact the foundation to get a copy. It is eye opening.
What is the best therapy for brain injured patients to regain arm and hand motion and use? And which tools do you recommend for help with bathing, eating, using the computer etc?
