    Maybe it is bone pain from the estrogen suppressor. I had it before I started Femara and it actually got better for awhile and now I'm back to the old nagging pain.

    Bobbi, I have been on Arimidex for 13 months. I have carpal tunnel in both hands. Badly in my right hand. I am left handed. The pain at night is so bad that it wakes me at night. I wear wrist splints at night. They help. I have been a knitter for more years than I care to count. I have always thought the carpal tunnel was related to my knitting. I did see a hand surgeon Tuesday and have scheduled carpal tunnel surgery for February 8.
