      Judytjab, my oncologist at Sloan said they don't do that test. I am going to follow up with another place, though.

      I've been anastrozole for the past 3+ years and have minimal side effects. I have some joint pain (just first thing in the morning) and have a herniated neck disc that sometimes affects the nerve leading to my left shoulder, but I can't say for sure those have been caused by the medication - and neither can my oncologist. Coincidences? What are your calcium and vitamin D levels? The medication works on the bones so we all need extra for both of those.

      I've been taking Anastrazole for close to 3 years. Last fall muscle spasms started.
      In March, while throwing a frisbee for my puppy, sprained my chest and upper back muscles. I'm now doing physical therapy, but altho slightly improved, still can't do much of anything due to chest, rib arm and upper back spasms. When diagnosed with bc I was stage 2a,.. bilateral bc,..one positive node bilaterally. Started Femara, had unbearable vertigo, stopped it, took 9 months to improve,..at 10 months I had a local recurrence, thus the Anastrazole. My whole upper body is trembling due to the spasms and muscle fatigue.
      It makes me angry that after all these years they haven't come up with something better!
