Having Headaches since I started taking Arimidex. Of course my mind runs and I feel like I have a brain tumor.

shaccasean--I'm not sure how long you've been on the AI, but I *did* have some headaches the first few weeks/months. They went away, though. A fair number of SEs tail off after your body adjusts.

Hi Shaccasean, and welcome to Breastcancer.org,

We're so sorry to hear you're managing this uncomfortable and troubling issue. In fact, the main Breastcancer.org site's side effect page on Headaches does list Arimidex as a medication that can cause headaches, along with some tips to help ease the pain.

In addition, you mention hot flashes affecting you while you sleep. Here's some good tips on Hot Flashes too.

We hope this helps and that you start feeling better soon. We look forward to seeing you around the boards!
