Apr 28, 2016 · Concerned about the side effects of anastrozole in Breast Cancer

I believe most of the meds have these side effects, some are not as bad as others, but the side effects are enough to drive you nuts.  The hot flashes are absolutely horrible.  I never went through anything like this when I went through menopause.

It made my joints hurt so bad and the hot flashes (which will go with all of the estrogen blockers) that I finally changed to letrozole.  The hot flashes are horrible, but taking 800 mg of magnesium has helped.  I do have what they call trigger finger with the letrozole which is a normal side effect.  The meds seem to make your body feel like a flu system at times.  I’d go off of it if I weren’t so afraid of getting the cancer back.

Gabapenti. Totally helps me sleep, but I don’t like the dizziness it has caused.

Hi,
The essential oil rub is:1 cup coconut oil the solid type10 drops Valor, 10 drop panaway, 10 drops peppermintMix it all together and store it in a glass jar apply it to areas of pain twice a day, you don’t need much at all because it spreads very well and it’ll last a while. You can also use it more than twice a day if you’d like the brand that I have is Young Living but I think any brand would work as long as its 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils

It is frustrating when you can’t do a lot for yourself and I’m not dealing with a neuropathy anymore but I have really really bad arthritis in both my wrists and in my knees and I’m on letrozole for the breast cancer issue I have. The letrozole causes the pain in my legs and muscles. I’m on the Gabapentin to help the hot flashes but I started taking 800 milligrams of magnesium and I think that’s helping more than the Gabapentin I’ve noticed how busy I’ve been but I’ve also had vertigo in the past and thought maybe that was part of that I am calling my doctor Monday to see if I can go off the gabapentin and see what happens.I have also started using some essential oils that a friend of mine gave me her sister-in-law has pain due to breast cancer and other forms of cancer and she’s been using this mixture of essential oils with coconut oil and her pain has subsided dramatically so I have started doing that also.I hope at some point everything lights up because I just am not the person I was before I dread going to bed I tried getting out of bed if I sit down it takes me forever to get up because of the pain it’s ridiculous you would think that they would come up with something else to help without all these bad side effects yes I’m glad to be alive

The gabapinton caused dizziness?  I’ve been taking that to help with my hot flashes.  I’ll have to talk to my dr about that.  Good to know.  My neuropathy went away after the chemo treatment ended.
