Femara and numbness in hands and feet
I am on femara tablets as well. I also experience numbness on my finger tips and feet as well. I pray the best for you and other women also. May God continue to BLESS US ALL. Isaiah 53:5 For He Was Wounded For Our Transgressions; He Was Bruised For Our Iniquities; The Chastisement Of Of Our Peace Was Upon Him And By HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED.

Hi I was dx'd with early stage BCA and had bilateral mastectomy in Jan 2014 then chem with Cytoxin and taxetere. Just started on letrozole 2.5 almost at 2 months. My hands feet began hurting numbness joint pain about 6 weeks after end of chemo and a wk before I started the letrozole. It has continue and is very painful but I wanted to try to stick it out since I understand this is common and gets better or so I hope itbhappenscto me as it has to some of you. Imptay and wish you all the best in

Me too. Do you think the symptoms will stop when we go off the med?

I take letrozole, the generic of femara, and I am also dealing with tingling and numbness in feet,
also lower back and hip pain. I was tempted to stop the drug to see if symptoms would cease, but after reading other comments from woman, I hope after a year or so the side effects would ease up a little. I hope this encourages you a little bit, to let you know your not alone with this. I hope the best for you along with other women God bless.
