My main issue is my stiff and aching fingers on my right hand only (so far). I have had one arthritic joint on my fore
Finger for years that doesn’t cause me much grief. About three weeks after starting anastrozole, my ring finger became stiff, started clicking, and really hurt. Stopped anastrozole for two weeks. No improvement. Started Exemestane. No improvement. Stopped meds altogether and fingers got better but issue was still there. Started Anastrozole again, and after about three weeks, my thumb joint seized up. Now I have three fingers on just the one hand hurting all the time. While I was off meds, I got sent to hand doctor. He decided I was getting carpal tunnel syndrome. When I asked about my finger, he said, “Oh that’s just arthritis.” I am beginning to think, at least with me, that Anastrozole can trigger a situation that has been simmering below the surface and then it’s hard to make it go away even when the drug is stopped. What was your experience with joint pain?
