Default Aromasin and hair loss

After DCIS and radiation, I was on Arimidex for a year. Stopped that when the neuropathy in my feet started. Switched to Aromasin, which has been pretty tolerable. Have been on that for about 2 1/2 years. About every 12 months, I need to take a break from it because of some side effect that I am having. This seems to help me tolerate resuming. Lately, however, I have been losing my eyebrow hair. Had a bald spot on my right brow for a while, then it grew back. Same thing happened again. Now, I have very thin hair on both, and the latest wrinkle is that it is accompanied by itching. At first, itching was just on eyebrows. Now it is all over my face. Has any one else experienced this?

Default thinning hair

I have only been on Aromasin for 1 month and can already feel my hair getting thinnner. I also ache everywhere...... I am 6 years past my lumpectomy and radiation. I took Arimidex for 14 months and then stopped. I have just started this drug because I would like to see if I can tolerate the side effects.I feel my fibromyalgia getting worse. I went drug free for the past 3 years. I pray!!!
