Hi, I have recently started Tamoxifen nearly two weeks ago after a lumpectomy in April and all seemed okay at first. At the weekend I got a nasty flu bug and have felt extremely ill with it, constantly coughing, sore throat, migraines, fuzzy head, weakness, aches, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting. I was due to go to my radiotherapy planning meeting on Friday but have had to postpone as I feel so dreadful. Last night, I woke up soaking wet with nightsweats and tonight, my forehead temperature is about 37.2 which gives an ‘amber alert’ on my thermometer. My cheeks are even hotter and bright red. I suppose my question is should I be worried as I don’t know whether my overheating is the hot weather, the flu or the Tamoxifen.
Very grateful for any advice as I’m getting so anxious about everything. Thanks
