Good evening everyone!
I was diagnosed on October 4, 2011 with CML and started Gleevec on October 7th. After a month of treatment, the nurse practioner told me that the side effects that I'm experiencing (Muscle and bone pain, muscle spasms, nausea, dizziness, numbness, chest pains, and headache, so far) will sub-side after 3 - 4 months. Has anyone experienced these side effects and have them go away after a while? If you have suggestions of things I can do to combat these side effects, I would greatly appreciate it!
