Im a single mom at 21 and I've recently been put on lupron for endometriosis.
 
Lately I've been experiencing lots of nausea and headaches through out the day. I did have extremely painful bloating within the first week after getting my first shot. I'm not sure if these aare symptom anyone else has had while on this... I'm concerned since I don't really know much about all of this.... especially being a only 21.

Honey, your age should have nothing to do with this but I can understand you wanting reassurance.

Headaches and nausea are listed as side effects of Lupron shots. Since it has been two weeks and you are still having them, give your doctor a call (the one who gave you the shot) and discuss if this is expected to go on this long. He or she needs to know about the side effects!

Feel better soon.

So sorry you're having a rough time! Definitely talk with your prescribing doctor. It can take a few weeks for it to get into your system and start working, so it could just be your body getting used to the medicine. I was on it for 2 years (way longer than normal) and the first 3-4 weeks were pretty hard to deal with. *hugs* hope you can get some relief soon!
