Anyone with sudden nausea, drenching hot flash

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi

I'm in the 4th yr since last period, I'm hypothyroid and have MAV migraine associated vertigo. I'm curious if anyone gets really nauseas before a hot flash and then the nausea lingers for awhile.

I'm also on cipro for uti and wondering if it's not causing their sudden awful nause.

My hot flashes get drenching at times, I mean I wipe my forehead and my hand is soaked, does any one get soaked like that?

    Hi patty, sorry to hear this but if you need reassurance im the same. I also have thyroid problems and terrible migraines - most days I feel horribly sick especially in the mornings. My hot flushes have calmed down a little but the migraines are definatley worse than ever . Horrible for us and hope you feel better soon .

      Yes it does to a degree but not altogether - more like weird spots and wobbly vision - how about you ? Ive had a lot of migraines lately and feel very sick a lot too .

      Hi Lou86

      I hope your migraines get better.  I have for the most part silent migraines, that where the MAV mirgraine associated vertigo comes in, instead of the headache so much I get awful dizziness that can last for days and weeks.  I do get the upper shoulders aching and neck and head pain when the migraine is getting started then the dizziness kicks in.  I know when my hypothyroid levels are off which they are now, I feel worse.

      Oh patty I sympathise it's horrible . Migraines are nasty and so debilitating in so many ways - I get the dizziness and feel so wobbly for days after known as the post dome stage that leaves you totally wiped out and spacey - I also get a numb face with stabbing sensations in my head, it honestly feels like im being stabbed with a sharp knife into my brain that makes me so sick - I know where you're coming from. Since this dreaded menopause they are much much worse, I take Triptans but am going back to the doctor as the effect lessons, I think we become immune to things. What do you take for the pain ? X

      I don't take any pain meds but my ENT neuro-otologist put me on propranolol becasue the dizzness was everyday 24/7 for the past 16 months and says it not just migraine and my anxiety was off the charts which apparently is part of the MAV as it effects the inner ear system.  The propranolol is helping with all of it.  I guess its a med they use quite a lot for migraines and such.  I stated with 5 mgs for a few days then went to 10 for about 2 weeks then went to 20 in the past week, I take it every night.  You might want to ask about it.  Its also helping the neck and shoulder aches some,  I also take 200mgs twice a day and it helps migraines and relaxes your muscles so that helps the aches also.  

      It does suck to have migraines, I know when I'm having a true one because I can't stand any noise and I just want to lay still.  the other thing i do when the neck and head hurt is lay down with a gel ice pack on my neck and it helps.

      I hope your doc can help you get rid of these, coz they are awful.

      I get these kid of flashing zigzags that start at the bottom of the eye

      then move round and arrive at the top and that is when the migraine

      stars to subside. This impairs my vision quite a lot. No headache at

      the time, and lasts 15-20 mins usually, then a moderate headache

      after.

      Thank you yes I will ask about a different medication, the Triptans can make me feel quite strange and give horrid heart thumps - unless id have them anyway, anxiety linked not sure but anyway not nice. Like you I just have to be still and quiet and left completley alone. Ive read lots of people take propranolol with good results so I'll speak to my doctor, not that he's very understanding he just sits and yawns at me, probably sick of the sight of me - well im not too keen on him either !

    Hi Party, yes all normal from what I can make out. I get nausea a lot too.

    Sometimes I pour with sweat particularly on forehead and strangely under

    My breasts (?). Sometimes no sweat. Nausea comes and goes. Horrid isn't

    It.

      Hi Jokey

      I get the same sweating on my forhead and under the breast, your right its awful, sometime Im just soaked, then there are days where I just get hot for a couple of mins.  I also have night sweats which I hate because they wake me up.  One other thing i've got is, when I have a hot flash I seem to have to go pee, weird but true.

      Do you get really sore under your breasts Patty? I can hardly wear

      My bra. Yes if I get a hot flush in bed at night I usually have to get

      up for a wee and then I feel better!!

      I am not understanding any of this, baffling😕
