The Aromatase Musculoskeletal Syndrome
An article appearing in Arthritis Care and Research looked at the peculiar syndrome of aches and pains found in women who take aromatase inhibitors for breast cancer.
The authors found that the musculoskeletal symptoms occurred in more than 50 per cent of treated women generally by 8 weeks. Focal areas of inflammation affecting tendons and joints in the hands and feet were the major findings. Later stage cancer and poorer quality of life were predictors of symptom development.
This is actually a fairly common problem I’ve seen. It can be very debilitating.
