Fatigue

Fatigue

Hi all - I am over a year post chemo, 1 year post radiation & 1 year on Tamoxifen. I worked & exercised all thru treatment. Was recently transferred to NYC for my job, so its a long day. I feel more tired now than I did during treatment. Have no energy to exercise & sleeping awful - waking up every 2 hours due to hot flashes. Any advice on how to get my energy back, sleep better, less hot flashes? My Dr suggested ongoing acupuncture but who has the time?

My insurance would only cover acupuncture for chemo related side effects....I tried.
