    Pain in hands

    Hi wanted to share my exsperiance with hand pain.I had Chemo 5 yrs. ago.radiation then took arimedex 5 yrs.I had joint pain so horrible.i was getting shots in my hands.I went for nerve testing.Long story short I stopped taking Cholestrol meds. And feel like a different person.I have little pain in hands.But nothing like I used to.It pays to check side effects of other meds.good luck to you.

    I can't really take pain meds since I have ulcertive COLITIS (22 yrs now) she she gave me a script for pain gel for my kncukles. I have to pick it up today and try it.
