From this study (1 week ago):
After taking Tamoxifen citrate for 6 months hot flushes got moderate, after only noticing them earlier. Then Vertigo had a very sudden onset, diagnosed with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. Getting used to it, but symptoms continue after one week. Still taking Tamoxifen.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
hands and feet go numb - turn white - once they warm up -- tingle until color comes back - could be as much as an hour to hour 1/2 before normal color returns.
