Are you still taking Arimidex? If so, have you had a bone density scan?
I had one in August because I'm on an AI and Ovarian Suppression. Turns out my bone density is low from the meds (Osteopenia) and now I'm getting Prolia injections 2x a year.
Anyway, my MO asked if I'd been having lower back aches. I had been, but thought they were related to back issues I've had for years. She said lower back aches are a symptom of low bone density.
I hope you get answers soon
