I had my first injection a week ago. I have stage 4 endo and PCOS. I haven't had any hot flashes yet but I've had a headache everyday since I got the shot. Has anyone else had this problem? I had a large cyst removed from my left ovary about four months ago so my doctor recommended Lupron for six months. I work and go to school so I don't know how I'll handle it if the side effects get really bad.
I did three months of lupron. In the beginning I had headaches but they got better. It took about two weeks after my first shot to get hot flashes. I think the headaches will get better. For me the side effects were minimal and it made my surgery so much easier. Good luck. It did get better for me.
I have been on the three month shot with add back therapy for 9 mos. I stopped the add back b/c I was still bleeding. Got my next Lupron shot and have had a terrible headache since, it's been over one week now. Right Temple throbs, right eye feels like it's going to explode, jaw and neck pain. But I also had an MRI of my brain with contrast about two hours before my Lupron. No clue what the culprit is, but worried about the potential of a blood clot. Advil and Goodys have helped but it's not entirely gone and gets worse when I'm sleeping.
I was on lupron shots every month for 3 and 1/2 years for precosious puberty. My head aches have never stopped. Haven't been on the medication for almost 20 years now. I can say hundreds of doctors and specialist and all I get is we see a problem but can't figure out why or how it's caused. As well as many other health/mental issues I believe resulted form this drug. On it way to long for anyone , it's a posion.
