    Yes Vickie's right...if you've had the Neulasta shot...that may very well be the cause. If so...try this...two days before your next dose of Neulasta, take Claritan (not Claritan D). Take one per day beginning two days before and the day of your visit. Then continue to take Claritan for three days after along with the pain meds your dr. prescribed. It really does work!!

    Did you have neulasta after your chemo? It may very well be the neulasta that is causing the joint pain.
