Hot flashes

Well i started having hot flashes a week ago. They SUCK!! Around Friday or Saturday I started having them during the night, and just about every hour. That really sucks! So I either wake up to uncover or I wake up to cover back up cause I am cold! Other than that I took my second shot on Thursday, really kicked those hot flashes up a notch! I also started my period, but just spotting for like 9 days, normal is like light- med 3-4 days. Also my family is starting to tell I am more bitchy, my sister pointed it out and my husband agreed. But for now hubby is just ignoring it, and not snapping back....yet! But other than the first 2 days of my "period" I haven't had any migraines. Hope fully this is all of the symptoms that I will be getting with this menopause.

What a Week

This week has been just horrible. I have had a sinus/cough/throat/headache/bodyache thing and have missed work all week. Not good. But I went to the Dr yesterday not strep throat (thank God) but some other sinusitis/tonsillitis/pharyngitis thing. I started on antibiotics yesterday and around 3 o'clock today I was starting to feel better. Woo Hoo! I am bound and determined to get back to work tomorrow, with my Dr's excuse in hand, so I will be going to bed early tonight since this snow and wind is not letting up and my 1 hour commute will be a bit longer I am guessing. No symptoms from the shot and it is getting time to order my next shot, so hopefully this will be better than I thought it would be.

Felt just horrible on Friday. Terrible migraine and nausea, also didn't sleep well Thurs night up every hour for about 10-15 min each time. I have had the nausea on and off for the past few days. Read that can be a symptom of the Lupron. Other than that I have found that if I take at least half a !)mg Ambien that I will be able to get a full nights sleep and not play the wake up game.

WOW yesterday was bad. good day at work but about 3/4 way through it started getting a migraine, just got worseon my hour long drive home. puked when i got home then took a 2 hour long nap on an ice pack. still had a little bit of a migraine on my drive to work today but got better after this morning. Not quite sure where it came from, but it could have been the new job. Hopefully I adjust quickly, cause these migraines are getting a little old! other than that no other symptoms that could be attributed to the Lupron.
