I have been taking tamoxifen for the past 3 months and have developed the symptoms above

I'm trying to figure out if this problem is being caused by an increase in my cordisol levels, and if any of the drugs I'm taking are making this happen.
From this study (1 month ago):
I thought I had a yeast infection and treated it with Monistat for 7 days. It did not clear up. I have frequent urge and urination, odor, "bubbles", lower abdominal pain; no fever tho.
