Back Pain From Hormone Blocker.

Back Pain From Hormone Blocker.

Has anyone had back pain from taking Anastrozole? This started several weeks after I began taking it. Wake up every morning in pain,,but it does seem to subside after movement and some exercise throughout the day. I can’t think of any way I might have injured it.

Barbara5 I take Anastrozole and I haven't had the back pain but some days I feel like a train has drove over my legs and my bones feel like they've been crushed. It might last a day or 2 then the next day I'm fine. It does make me tired all the time. ☹️

I'm on letrozole and my hands and feet hurt. I was on Anestrazol but I had horrible elbow pain and some extreme mood disturbances my Oncologist switched to Letrozole. The pain and stiffness does get better the more you move... I'm starting yoga again soon, hopefully that will help.
