Does anyone else have issues with the heat? I get too hot heart races and I feel faint. My labs was good a few weeks ago I had a full heart work up a year ago. I'm on cycle too I did this last year in the heat as well I'm sick of all this. And my bp is fine I just checked it.

    Hi Pamela! OMG, my hot flashes got real bad in March and I've had several a day since then...almost 3 solid months. I was ironing the other day and decided never to that again! Cooking is uncomfortable as well. I bring my portable fan into whichever room I'm in. Sometimes when I flash, my hands tingle and my heart races. Just breathe deeply through that...and understand it's just hormonal and nothing serious (since you've been checked).

    I live in Florida. And summer is here...so I'm pretty miserable. The night sweats are the worst, I wake up several times a night. Every night. I'm sick of it as well and am trying to find things that will help. Keep looking. Keep ice water handy, that does help! When you flash, sip and breathe. -Kaz

    Like someone else said... I literally feel like I'm allergic to the sun or heat in general.  It makes me physically ill.  The house is kept at 65 all day and 62 at night... with every fan available on!  I'm on a one a day peri vitamin to help and it does.   My flashes are not as bad now but I'm still hot regularly, like my body temp runs high or something.  I invested in some wrist cool things.  Get them wet and put them in the freezer and wrap my wrist when I leave the house.  It works wonders for a few hours.

      Yes I'm actually ending cycle now but today it's horrible I can't be outside the heat makes my heart race it's ridiculous i did this last year as well I just don't understand why hormones has to mess with ever single thing in our bodies. How can one keep pushing through and be like oh this is my perimenopause it can't hurt me when u feel like you will flop out and die ugh. My heart was checked full work up alittle over a year ago everything was fine.
