From this study (3 weeks ago):
I have developed fibromyalgia while on tamoxifen for about 1 year. Previous to that I was taking arimidex for about 2 year.
I stopped taking tamoxifen because of severe cramps in my legs and feet and Pins and needles. Also tingling sensations in my arms and legs. Then I started having skin pain from my peripheral nerves that progressed over 8 months from my spine to my entire back and arms and some painful skin on my legs now too. Just now diagnosed with fibromyalgia
