- Many of the listed side-effects are the same as for menopause. I think it's difficult to know how much of what people are reporting as side-effects are really caused by menopause. My hands and feet are killing me. This is listed as a common side-effect. However, these symptoms started months BEFORE I went on arimidex or even knew I had cancer.58WomanBreast cancer
- I developed painful trigger fingers and thumbs, plus De Quervain's tenosynovitis (like carpal tunnel except in the inner side tendon) in both wrists. My feet hurt when I walked--walked like a very old person. Don't take it!57WomanA few months
- Joint pain and weight gain. The joint pain stopped after I stopped taking the drug, but I haven't been able to get the weight off.53Woman
- Nothing helped. But 6 days after I quit taking it most of the horrendous side effects went away.WomanA year or soI was taking it as an anti-estrogen to inhibit re-occurence of cancer.
