- Plantar fasciitis and femara
HELP!!! I have been on femara for 12 months, and at about 4 months I started getting plantar fasciitis. I now have plantar fasciitis in both feet and it is so painful that I am contemplating using a wheel chair. I cry daily from the pain, and sometimes wish I would just die. I was taking ibuprofen to help, but my onc had me stop due to liver issues. Is there anyone out there that can give me any advice or suggestions? I truly wish that I had just left the cancer alone, as my quality of life is so poor now that I see very little value in it.
- Does femara affect crp results?
Does femara affect the results of the C Reactive Protein test? I have been on it for two years and have side effects of joint pain and hot flashes with nausea.
- I used metrogel and now i have severe incontinence. i'm also on ant-depressants. please help
I went for a routine check up to my gynae and she noticed an inflammation or something and prescribed Metrogel. I followed the rules for hygiene and administered the gel. After the 5th day I developed this feeling of incontinence(urgently wanting to badly pee but just a few drops come out) I spoke to my gynae about it and she said I must use citrosoda. I tried Interflora probiotic and yoghurt and overnight it seemed to be okay. Its two days and although its a little better it means that I can't be out of the house because I have to run urgently to the toilet all the time.
- Which of my meds is causing incontinece
i need to know which of these meds are causing/ can cause my incontence whether it is just one or a combination of the meds any help would be greatly appericated
- I have severe bone pain and am taking femara. even when i am not on the drug, the bone pain does not go away. is it possible that the femara is triggering internal herpes outbreaks causing this pain?
For the past eight months, I have been experiencing severe bone pain, not joint pain, but bone pain that causes me to feel the marrow in my bones is smoldering. I have tremendous amounts of fatigue in addition to genital herpes. I am only taking Femara, Vitamin D and Calcium per the Oncologist orders. I have had a bone scan for cancer a few months ago and my primary care MD told me bone cancer would not cause this type of overall pain.
I have gone off the Femara for a few weeks at time to see if the pain would subside. It does not. Recently, I began to think that since my herpes outbreaks are triggered by certain foods, especially nuts, maybe an ingredient in the Femara is triggering the more systemic Herpes outbreak. I have never been a person to have headaches, only when I have herpes outbreaks, and now I have severe and frequent headaches. Could there be a connection?
I have read that Femara can cause bone pain on its own, but this is so over the top from the blogs I have read, something else must be going on. Thanks to anyone who has any information regarding people who have had Herpes outbreaks for years and now are taking Femara.
I have taken other hormone inhibitors with many side effects for previous breast cancer, which is why my Oncologist chose Femara this time around. Mary

- Bone pain whilst taking letrozole
Before having breast cancer I walked 10 miles a week, and did a 40 min exercise
routine. Having had a lumpectomy followed by 15 radiation treatments, and then
prescribed letrozole for 10 years, I can no longer do my 40 min exercise routine, nor the power walking that I have done for so many years.
I suffer severe bone pain and fatigue.
I have come off the medication (3 wks now) after taking letrozole for 6mths.
I can no longer tolerate the awful side affects, and Im just hoping the cancer
does not come back.
- Abilify causing incontinence
Abilify is making me have Little to no bladder control. Is better once I stopped taking but has not gone away 2 weeks later.
- Tinnitus with letrozole
Sudden onset of ringing in the ears after two weeks on Letrozole 2.5mgs
