I am on zoladex, due my second injection next week and at the dreaded stage where side effects get worse by the day. i know lots of ladies warned me to stay away and I was fully aware of the risks and ready to tackle the side effects as I didn't have many options open to me.
For the past couple of weeks I've been getting hot flushes, but they seem to be getting more severe. I am going to buy some sage tomorrow to see if that will help.
but I have also been experiencing severe nausea and really bad headaches to the point of migraines for days now.
my gp has started me on cyclizine, yet another med which has helped a little but i really can't stand it. leaves me unable to move. i've tried ginger oat biscuits, peppermint extra strength capsules, sucking on mints helps a little, lemon, fresh air.
My tummy feels as if 'not right' hard to explain, i feel like i should have a bug or something,but fear it's just the rush of hormones going up and down in my body.
I am better in the morning and not pregnant. it eased a bit whilst on my period, so I think must be hormones as hot flushes are worse when i have nausea.
also has anyone tried one of these menopause magnets? i am a bit skeptical at £25, but if it means taking less tablets and works will be worth it.
any ideas or advice will be greatfully received.
oh and already eliminated wheat, gluten and potatoes and building up to full endo diet which is a massive change to my lifestyle so really trying all i can!xxx
