Has anyone ever had zoladex without hrt?
Im 29, have mild endo but with severe pain. Ive had 2 zoladex injections now without hrt and had almost all side effects and still off work.
I think my gynae would have put me on tiblieone (however you spell it!) but due to incompetent people, lost paper work etc etc and my gp too scared to do anything without consultants say so am yet to start it.
Im now allowed to start it but my gp has advised against it as i have a high clotting risk (dad had stroke at 29) plus my nan had breast cancer early ish age.
My question is should i just start hrt despite the risk?
Had all the usual side effects of increased pain, mood swings etc but severe side effects of hot flushes that start to make me pass out, severe migraines and nausea. Had to start on two anti sickness meds, at the moment seemed to have calmed.
Newest side effect is weak, loud clicky joints. I had really bad hip pain and limp often from endo pain anyway but has spread to my ankle and wrists which are painful. I click everywhere and never have before? Anyone else had that?
Just been on phone to gp who said wonder why your joints hurt and I had to tell her it was a side effect whilst she googled to check!
I hate knowing more than the experts, they make me feel a hypochondriact, but don't know half of it as to why we worry! Just want someone who knows what they are talking about to reassure me, that I can trust! Have been discharged from gynae, who talked the talk in clinic but never carried out his actions and my gp is referring me to another endo specialist.
Just having one of those frustrating weeks where your body aches all over, your limping, you can't get comfy, your having flushes, exhausted, people question why you arent better or back to work or say you look better when you feel horrible. People try and help but you just want to scream or hibernate until it's all over then you remwmber it won't be. Ahhhhh !!!
Doing really well at being positive and learning to manage things and get on with life, but am just so tired of it all
Hope you ladies are having a better dayxxx
