Hi, this isn't directly answering your question, but if you haven't discussed these side effects with your doctor i really think you need to now. Below is a list of reported side effects which you must be wary of. I tried to highlight the ones you have identified but can't do that so asterixsed (sp?) them;
Seek medical attention right away if any of these SEVERE side effects occur when using Anastrozole:
Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing or swallowing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue; unusual hoarseness); calf pain, **swelling, or tenderness**; chest pain; dark urine; depression; fainting; fever, chills, or persistent sore throat; frequent or painful urination; mental or mood changes; numbness of an arm or leg; one-sided weakness; red, swollen, blistered, or peeling skin; severe burning or pain in wrists and hands; **severe or persistent bone pain**; severe or persistent dizziness or headache; severe or persistent nausea, vomiting, or stomach pain; **severe or persistent tiredness or weakness**; shortness of breath; speech problems; **swelling of the arms or legs**; swollen lymph nodes; vaginal bleeding or unusual discharge; vision changes; yellowing of the skin or eyes.
Hi Mary Sharon
This sounds just like me. I have been on aromasin and arimidex but now on tamoxifen for breast cancer. My Family Dr. put me on Celexa for hot flashes
and it does help.She also put me on trazodone 50 ml. at bedtime for sleep. I developed dequirvains tendonitis in my hands so went to a hand specialist who gave me shots in the tendons and this helped alot. The joint, bone and muscle pain, I take mobic thru my family Dr. and tylenol. The celexa is also a anti-depressant. Please tell your family Dr. in addition to your oncologist because he or she can help you.
I still feel ache and fatique but not like I did before.
I hope this gives you something to think about, I wish you well.
