Amy, its unhealthy to lose more than 10 pounds a month. As for all your symptoms, its meds related. Side effects at that. Hot/cold flashes = prednisone Naseau= Imuran Dizzyness and body tremors can be either meds however I'm betting prednisone. Call your pharmacist and find out all side effects on each meds, but I do know for a fact the hot cold flashes are prednisone related and naseau is imuran related.
Prednisone gave me the hot/cold flashes. I asked my doctor cuz I'm 28 how on earth I could have them being so young. He told me it was the prednisone and to "Consider it a preview of what is to come in the future". Men lol! Imuran always made me naseauated, then after awhile it caused severe vomiting to where I had to go in the ER for iv fluids and Iv meds. I also had loose stools from imuran. After a few months I scared the crap out of all my doctors and won a GI doctor when I started litterly having a menstrual cycle out of my rear. Then it was discovered it was the Imuran that made me so sick, so they tried cell cept but I got hives. He tried to ask me if it was anything I ate, then I told him it had to be the cell cept cuz I took it first thing when I got up and I took it with water, so if he could figure out on a empty stomach and taking it with water if it was anything else but the cell cept to let me know. He didnt even believe me at first if I knew what hives were. Ive only grew up with severe allergic reactions, so I told him "Its hives, and if my airway would of swelled I would of went straight to my purse and got my epi pen out and administered it. Then I would of got my ass to the hospital. So if I dont know what allergic reactions are, then why on earth do I have to carry an epi pen?" He was speachless, found out from another doctor that he wrote in my medical chart "She definately does know what allergic reactions and hives are." I really dont like my oncologist, but I heard he is the best of the best in my state.
