    can tamoxifen cause fybrodmyalgia? I have severe fatigue,,my fingers have started hurting like the tendons are tightening up. It is a sharp pain and burning pain. Can't sleep good either.

    My mom actually got fm after being on tamoxifen for several years. Her doctors really are convinced that she got the fm as a result of the damage the tamoxifen caused.

    She was really really sick for a long time, which is why she stopped the tamoxifen. Being on that AND having fm was too unbearable.

    And she used to get horrible horrible cramps during the night; she'd wake up screaming. She's not sure if that was from tamoxifen or fm or both, though.
