STRUGGLING WITH TAMOXIFEN
Hi I have stage 1A, est/pro positive, hers negative, low grade 1 and was having a lumpectomy on left breast. I also took radiaiton for a month in Feb. 2022. I took tamoxefin last January then in Feb. exact a month later, I got hives. I stopped pill for two days which urgent care enter nurse told me to. However my oncologist doubted that pill would cause hives. I was back on the pills and didnt get any hives. Two months later, in April, I got hives again and passed out twice within a min or so. I went to ER and stayed overnight and the doctors tested me everything. Nothing wrong wtih my blood pressure, vago (dizzy), and many tests turned negative. It is totally mystery. I suspect that i ate something that conflicted with tamoxenfin. I couldnt figure it out. I wrote everything i ate. I did not eat any new food, ZERO.
I decided to stop the pills and the dr agreed with me until I took blood test and see if I am already on post menopause. If I am, will give me a better and different mediice for that. So lately, no tamoxefin, i ate anything and feel much comfortable. I hate tamox! Has that effect cause you? I might have a second thought to take mastecomy so i dont have to take any pills.
