I have been using Flasodex for a while and the only compliant I have is having joint pain/aches. I'm only 24yrs old, already in menopause but I have life. Flasodex had helped my tumor markers go down so I'll endure the pain. "I GUESS"

I have noticed general body aches. Arthritic in nature. As I do have arthritis in my spine and some fingers, I feel that the Faslodex has exsaserbated this problem, but I am alive and will cope with these problems gladley.It does not realy hinder my quality of life.I tolerate the injection well.It is helpful to know others have experienced my symptoms.

After a year of treatment, I continue to have a lot of pain at the injection site for a least 3 weeks after each shot. I also have joint pain, my arthritis has flaired up and I have neuropathy type pain in my feet.

Treatment #10 - low platelet count. The itchy skin was probably not due to dry winter weather. 3rd week after treatment - easily bruise, slow clotting.

matastatic bone cancer/ breast cancer stage 3b estrogen receptor positive. tumors on spine and left rib cage. had radiation on spine and ribs and helped very much. lidoderm patches have helped with rib pain and migraine headaches that occur after treatments. joint pain and hot flashes are helped with the use of aspirin.
