... oncologist recommended taking magnesium 200 mg to help with the hot flashes and it has helped somewhat, but I am still experiencing severe sweating. Has anyone else experienced really bad sweating along with the hot flashes. The sweating has almost ruined my life as I am embarrassed to go places where I might have to do anything besides sit still
The Tamoxifen has taken your production of estrogen away. Did you have surgery as well? You are going through an extreme menopause, that's what's causing the sweating. I had a hysterectomy when I was 32, and it sent me into immediate menopause, which caused the symptoms you are describing. You will get through this. It will begin to taper off slowly. But it will taper off. I wish you all the best. Keep us posted!
