There is only one arm in this trial. Please see interventions for more detailed descriptions.
Other: History and Physical Exam
The physical exam includes vital signs and ECOG performance status.
Other: Grip Strength Measurement
A hand grip strength test will be used to measure and compare baseline and post-AI treatment forearm muscle strength in each hand.
Self-administered surveys including Health Assessment Questionnaire Disability Index, CES-D, FACIT-F, PSQI, GAD7, number of minutes of morning stiffness, and questions pertaining to vasomotor symptoms will be used in this study to assess for presence, severity, characteristics, and associations of AI-associated musculoskeletal symptoms.
Other: Blood Collection
A set of blood markers will be assayed at baseline, 6 months, and 12 months.
Procedure: Ultrasound of Hand/Wrist
An inflammatory arthritis ultrasound scoring method similar to the RAMRIS scoring system used in rheumatoid arthritis, will evaluate joints in the most affected hand and wrist at 6 months.
- Presence, severity, and change in severity of pain based on joint exam and joint ultrasound inflammatory score. [ Time Frame: Study visits at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months after the start of treatment with an Aromatase Inhibitor ]
