Yes, Gleevec can cause muscle, joint, bone pain and whole body weakness to the point of not being able to walk. Nothing can be done really... but just relax and overcome the symptoms. I know of someone who has leukemia and has terrible body pain and weakness, caused by all the chemotherapy.
The medicine is necessary for treatment so you just have to keep on taking it.
