    Sandy, ask your oncologist. Only s/he has all the information about your diagnosis necessary to provide this information. Sorry the Arimidex is so tough - ask your doctr if switching to Femara or Armoasin would be an option. Or even switching to tamoxifen, which doesn't come with the aching joints side effect. It's not quite as effective as Arimidex, but better than nothing at all, certainly. Good luck - PJH
