I have been taking euthyrox for at least 20 years (now on 125 a day) - was prescribed for underactive thyroid.
Ten years ago I got breast cancer and went through mastectomy, chemo and radio + tamoxifen
I was 55 at the time and chemo pushed me into menopause literally overnight
For the last 1 years I have had the most horrendous hot flushes and night sweats. In the day they come every hour and literally soak my clothes. At night they wake me up at least 5 or 6 times and I have to change the sheets daily. I have been to many doctors and tried many alternative things but nothing seems to work.
The other day a friend told me I should quit my thyroid meds or a while to see if that would make any difference - I was thinking of reducing my 125 dose to 100 for a start and then going to my GP for advice/blood tests etc
As you can imagine these flushes have a severe negative effect on the quality of my life and I would do anything to get rid of them
Anyone out there think there could be a link between this medication and my crazy hot flushes?
