Has anyone had foot pain while taking Arimidex? Any suggestions as to how to deal with it? I have been taking Arimidex for 8 months and experience bone and joint pain elsewhere, but my feet are most affected at the moment.

    Be sure and talk to your doctor about this. This pain may just be caused strictly as a side effect of the drug. You may also have stress fractures in your feet. I had stress fractures in both feet a couple of years ago while taking a hormone blocking drug. Stress fractures can happen anytime and you don't necessarily have to be a runner or do any other type of high foot stress athlete. It can happen while just walking or not wearing shoes with good support. This is not-a-big-deal but I had to wear a foot/ankle boot for support while it was healing. This is a possibility so check with your doctor. My feet healed just fine but it was a pain because first one foot broke and right after it was healing, the other foot broke. Arrrrrgh. Take care, Sharon

      Thanks Sharon. I was unaware of the possibility of stress fractures; t makes perfect sense given how the medication works. I will ask my oncologist when I have my checkup on Thursday. Interestingly the joint and bone pain seems to move around - for a few days it's mostly my hips, then my feet, then my knees, etc.

    I have been taking Arimidex for four years. My feet and ankles hurt. Generally they only hurt when I start walking and once I have walked for a little while it gets much better. Until it subsides the bottom of my feet hurt the worse. Seems like I feel every bone in my feet and they all hurt. Sorry, wish I had better news. Hang in there.
