Welcome to the site.
Bone pain is a serious side effect and you must seek immediate medical attention. Tingling of the skin is also a severe side effect.- Flu like symptoms can also be connected, and it is also a serious side effect.
Body pain is listed as a common side effect, hot flashes can also be related to what you are feeling.-
I suggest you go to the ER.-
Generic Name: bicalutamide
