Sorry I haven't posted to this list sooner. I don't quite get how it works? Do messages posted here get posted on my healthunlocked gmail account? How do I post messages? Do I use email@example.com?
Can anyone offer support for the following:
Sorry for short notice. I'm seeing a doctor tomorrow. I've been on Lupron for PCa mets since Dec 24, 2015 (& am in midst of 2nd 3-month shot). About 4 weeks ago I started getting mild but steady (during day) headaches. Nothing, including Tylenol, seems to help. Wassersug's helpful book (A...D...T spelled out) doesn't list them as major side effect, but other on-line sources DO mention headaches as a possible side effect. Most of the on-line info relates to women with Lupron & headaches, though. Two things
Any input in terms of experiences with Lupron & headaches?
Any recommended "what to do"?
Since ADT impacts pituitary, could that be involved in the headache process?
By the way, I'm dealing, I guess ok, with hot flashes and getting up 2-3 to urinate. And I'm still jogging, even though fatigue is awful. And I still am optimistic & have my sense of humor.
So thanks in advance for any input. Jim Wallace (DaVinci June 2015; probable bone mets so started ADT Nov 27, 2015--Firmagon one month, then Lupron).
