Default aromasin

I was on tomoxifen for two years and in september last year my consultant changed me over to aromasin . I have been suffering from pins and needles in my fingers and numbness also in my hands went to see the doctor and was mentioned may be a trapped nerve so went for physio helped a little .As I have said the consultant put me on aromasin in september within a week the pins and needles got a lot worst and went back to the doctor who sent me to hospital for nerve tests on my hands and wrists the diagnoises was carpal tunnel syndrome which is a swelling in the wrists which causes the nerve to trap. I must have had this problem before the aromasin but going on the aromasin has accelerated the problem. I will have to under go two operations on my wrists as this is the only cure I am at present consulting with my breast cancer nurse as to, stay on aromasin or go back to tomoxifen as i do not want it to reoccure after the operation. Also suffer from stiffness in the joints,difficulty in getting up in the morning and weight gain.
