hello - I have just started taking Ibrance for a local recurrence in 2 yrs of BC. It's been about a week. I feel my tongue burning to the point where I'm not able to eat. Any trick to helping this situation? I remember when I was on AC chemo, they would make me suck ice during administering to avoid mouth sores...

Also having terrible back pain, but not sure due to Ibrance or calcium deficiency...
