Hot flashes....seriously

Anyone have experience with hot flashes? I seem to be having them often. My head becomes an inferno and sweat drips down my face for no apparent reason. I started primal eating about 3 weeks ago...or is it the chemical pregnancy throwing off my hormones. I can't be going through menopause at this point can I? 42 people ....42.

Sorry to say, but yes, had hot flashes all the time after my last miscarriage. Tried to deal with them for months using over the counter remedies and advice on the web - nothing worked. Went to a GYN that specializes in pre-menopause this past January and she put me on HRT and I feel so much better. So, it can happen earlier than the norm age
(50). I am 45 and my period has basically gone since last miscarriage in 2010, but I really don't miss it that much. I was hating the hot flashes and needed relief. Hope you can find some relief as well.

Ugh, I got them CONSTANTLY when my RE put me into "fake" menopause to try and stop my ovarian cysts. I used to stand in front of the freezer with the door open until they stopped. No joke. I still get them occasionally, but not nearly as bad as when I was on medication. I hope you find relief soon. :(

I'm just catching up here. Are you fucking kidding me... how much can one woman take - I am SO sorry to read about the chemical. So so sorry. I wish there was something I could do for you... keeping you in my thoughts ... xoxo

(and yes - hot flashes could be the hormones - go see your dr to make sure!)
