      I had endometriosis and received a hysterectomy as part of my treatment. At age 39, it was sudden surgical menopause for me and I do remember getting cold sweaty kinds of hot flashes, where I would get chilled, especially across my shoulders. Since Lupron essentially puts you in medical menopause, it's probably the same kind of thing. But you can mention it to your doc's office, just to be sure. Take care.

      Any time I get the Lupron shot for the first few days after receiving it I get a combination of Hot Flashes and chilling. It totally drains me of any energy after I get it. But after a few days the chills go away but the Hot flashes and night sweats continue.

      I was on Lupron and Casadex for 3 1/2 years. The hot flashes continue on now even after being off these for 6 months. I did take megestrol for the hot flashes for some time. I think it did help. ED has been a fact of life throughout. Otherwise, I had no other issues.
      Hang in there. Best wishes as you continue treatments.
