  • Lo loestrin and breast plate pain
    This has to be the worst birth control I have ever taken. I felt like two different people. I turned into a lunatic when I was in my cycle - which I never knew when I was on my cycle because I bled for two days here, four days there, 5 days another time. I never knew when I was going to bleed. My face had cysts and I was breaking out like I was going through puberty-I'm 33! I was having pain in my breast bone where the cartilage meets the sternum. I am talking about serious pain! It felt like I had slept on my side for hours with a boulder on me. I would never recommend this birth control to anyone. If you are taking it and feeling these symptoms, talk to your doctor about switching birth control immediately!

  • Debilitating side effects of anastrozole
    Initial 2 months on anastrozole I felt fine. After the 3rd month, I became depressed. I awakened with

    trigger thumb requiring 2 cortisone shots to regain use of my hand! I also experienced burning pain in right shoulder, right bicep, right forearm, right wrist & spasms in right hand, intermittently. I had intense pressure in my right groin extending to my right knee along my varicose vein causing it to dilate. I could not walk for more than ten minutes and even standing was difficult. Anastrozole was d/c'd and am now on exemestane. Symptoms persist but to a much lesser degree. Appointments with a physical therapist for the groin problem are alleviating the pressure.
