I can't believe I am having more symptoms... I think and hope its from the Arimidex side effects.
I have had dry lady parts.. no biggie really, I just treat with Replens. But lately, a turn for a worsening condition has developed.
Not only do I have constant burning pain deep inside, that even Replens irritates, I have bleeding. The thing is, I had a complete hysterectomy and oophorectomy first bout of BC so its not coming from my uterus or cervix. I have no urinary issues.
The bleeding is bright red with a few clots but its not alot. Just enough to worry me now. I will go see my GP tomorrow since this started Friday. It also hurts more if I walk for too long.
As for the tingly arm and lump - the tingly arm is really helped if I put on a compression sleeve. In fact, it clears up. If I wear a compression sleeve for a few days, then take it off, all symptoms gone. The lump has gone down too. Yeah!!
Sigh.... I really really am hoping the symptoms are SE. I can deal with that.
Anyone else experience this?
