leg pain

I am thankful that my one year scans were all good, but I am having a minor problem that I seem to remember being discussed in this conference last year. I am on Nolvadex (tamoxifen) and have been taking it for almost a year. I recently started experiencing leg cramping and achiness that intensifies with walking. Is this related to the tamoxifen or the chemo I had? Has anyone tried "Gentle Fitness Video's" to regain muscular strength? As always, thanks for your responses -- this site is great!

    I feel that tamoxifen has contributed to my legs hurting but they hurt most of the time -walking does not make it worse.

    Pain that intensifies with walking could be related to circulation and since tamoxifen leaves us at risk for blood clots, perhaps you should mention this to your doctor.

    Have been on tamoxifen since the end of last September and felt much better BEFORE I took it.

    Good Luck in finding relief.

    I had the same problem and I whinned to DR for almost 5 months. the finally put me on some free samples of celebrax and it has stopped the pain about 95 percent. It is worth try I guess. I know everyone is different, all I can tell you is that it worked for me.
    Good luck
