Arimidex and dequervains tendonitis
I just got back from the orthopedic surgeon. I was given a cortisone shot for something called dequervain's tendonitis. It started out with a kind of bump on my right wrist that was painful. Then my thumb started to hurt. I went to the rhuematolgist because I also have the rhuematoid factor in my blood (RA is simmering in me!) and I found out that I have a bone spur on my right shoulder with osteoarthritis! The doc said it's unusual for someone my age to have this (I'm 45). Well, unusual things happen to me! Then I showed her the bump. She took an xray and said that it may be a ganglion cyst. It turns out that it's this Dequervain's Tendonitis and I KNOW it's from the Arimidex. It started a couple months after I began taking it. Anyone else have this?
