    Joint pain is a side effect of tamoxifen. You should let your doctor know since you have had radiation and chemo you bones may have weakened hip fractures are the most common fracture from weakened bones from what my doctor told me.

    You may want to have your Vitamin D checked to be sure you are not deficient. Low Vitamin D can also cause joint pain. Best of luck to you.

    I too have hip pain after the tamoxifen. I'm told it has to do with the estrogen blocker I will be on for the next 5 yrs. I'm set on taking ibu and working thru it though.
