Sat, Jan 5 12:50pm · What problems have you had with Tamoxifen? in Breast Cancer

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.

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.
