Avastin and back pain

I have been on Avastin since August 2010. I have been tolerating it really well. Lately, I have developed a few symptoms that I am not if they are related to the Avastin or something else.

I started having pain in my back about 3 months ago, between my shoulder blades. Then about 6 weeks ago my feet started hurting when I would get out of bed in the morning. Now I have joint stiffness and muscle soreness all over my body, especially if I sit for more than 10 minutes at a time.

Has anyone else experienced these sort of aches and pains?

Hi, Lora.

I was just wondering if you were taking steroids. David gets pretty bad pain in his knees when he takes dexamethesone.

I hope that you can find out the cause and take care of it quickly!

Love and blessings,

I was taking the dex but i took my last dose on Dec 31. I tapered off slowly.
I do know the pain in the knees from that. I had a lot of that.
This pain is not the same and it is a general all-over body thing. I actually have been starting to feel a little better this week. still have the pain but it is more tolerable.
I have a doc appt on Monday and will see what he says about it.

I have been following you and David. I have been praying for you both. What a roller coaster ride.

thanks, Lora
