Has anyone had any luck with techniques for decreasing muscle discomfort (chronic tightness/pain) with Sprycel? The drug is working great for me (been on 100 mg for a little over a year) and the discomfort is not significant enough that I would want to switch. I am curious if anyone has had luck with massage, acupuncture, etc or a particular supplement? I tried magnesium for a bit but it didn't work. My muscles get extremely tight and I can only seem to get a few hours of relief from massage or stretching.
Also, my doctor said if I get low enough BCR levels at my most recent blood draw she would be willing to discuss dropping me to 80 mg. I'm a little freaked out - I have side effects but they are livable and I don't want to do anything to risk my good response so far (I'm 41, have 2 little kids, am the breadwinner of the family - can't take the chance of getting worse). She said we could check my response again in 6 weeks just to be on the conservative side if I am concerned. Any thoughts?
