First time

Recently started iquimobid 5 ream for vulvar cancer (squamous cell vulvar carcinoma), waiting to find out results of recent pap, and appointments with gun to discuss further treatment options.  Is it normal that every joint in my body hurts, and I am experiencing pain all over?  And how do I find someone to talk to, because my husband says I am just complaining?

How are you? If you are referring to Imiquimod, an immunomodulator, possible side effects such include  blisters, body aches or pain, sore throat itching, and even redness or scaling of the skin. If it persists, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper management. Support groups for vulvar cancer locally or over the net may also help. Take care and do keep us posted.
