I'm looking for comments from other men who have had short term Lupron. Preferably without surgery.
I experienced Lupron side effects for about 10 months after treatment: emotions and fatigue for the most part.
The hang over from Lupron seems to be over, but I'm experiencing a sort of disorientation, spatial perceptions, "dizziness". I had thought this was due to fatigue or being tired, but apparently not.
I have been invited to be part of an OHSU research into the effect of exercise on these sorts of symptoms and falling. Nice, but I'd like to know the cause.
My PCP is looking at low blood sugar, iron deficiency and thyroid issues. He says if tests don't show anything in particular, the next step may be a neurologist. I have also asked to have referral to an endocrinologist to learn whether the Lupron has affected my endocrine system. Thyroid seems to be a likely suspect from my research.
Has anyone else experienced this? Did you find resolution?
