Interesting, I'd never made that connection before.  I do take a Glucosamine/Chondroitin supplement daily.  Maybe that's working and I just don't realize it, i.e., the pain could be worse without it!

Well, since last I posted did Taxol for about 8/9 months. Muscle spasms, neuropathy. Extreme fatigue for the first few months but it became more bearable as the months wore on but always felt like I could never get enough sleep even though I might sleep 12 to 14 hours a day. Tamil stopped working and had last dose May 5, 2017. Just had first round of Kadcyla.
