i was diagnosed in October,2012 and had treatments of lumpectomy and radiation. the oncologist put me on arimadex January, 2014 and i've now been on for 18 months. getting so i hate being out in the sun because i just get so hot, walk funny (short steps like a really old lady) and not what i would describe as joint pain - just my walk is unsteady and not what it used to be. any one have any of these? not enough to stop but worrisome. thanks, ladies.
