Just wondering if anyone here has experienced TKI withdrawal syndrome-like symptoms with going to 1/2 the dose of their TKI. My hem/onc referred me to a rheumatologist who prescribed yet another NSAID and cyclobenzaprine (a muscle relaxer). I cant tell any difference. I told the rheumatologist that my symptoms are very similar to what I experienced with TKI withdrawal, which is said to be like polymyalgia rheumatica, but the rheumatologist dismissed PMR, saying I'm too young toyou to have PMR. It describes my symptoms, IMO, however.
