To all concerned: I, too, am having side effects in my legs from taking this hormone drug after I had a teeny malignant tumor removed from my right breast. It started with what felt like shin pain, or shin splints, but, now it appears to also be muscular. I also have arthritis in my knees and, unfortunately, a very slight meniscal tear in my left knee. I am not sure what's causing what, but, I will tell you, I am so tired of feeling like I have rickets or something. My legs hurt when I walk too long and the pain has begun to wake me up in the middle of the night. If any of you have switched medications to one that has eliminated the leg pain, please let me know what you switched to. Thanks!View Thread

Now she has it again, its heartbreaking. And I am physically unable to be there by her side, during this time she needs me the most. I am embarrassed to say I am currently incarcerated. I am hoping some of you ladies have advice for meView Thread
