    I only had night sweats in very early peri, it was how i knew it was peri start of, also night sweats but not for long, then had ten year peri, then first year of post meno i had a summer of excessive hot flushes up to 20 per day.

    A hot flush is the way our bodies cool down in menopause due to hormones sending things all over place..

    as it was a hot summer i re started flushes ten years later .. Now its cool they have gone again..

    i am age 50, 16 months post menopause

    Not all women get flushes ... They say 75% do in general ..

    The root cause of hot flushes is not clear.

    What is known is that the part of the brain that senses and controls body temperature (and other body functions) is the hypothalamus.

    During the menopause, oestrogen levels fall.

    Although not fully understood, scientists think that this fall in oestrogen causes a glitch in the way the hypothalamus senses body temperature, making it think that you are too hot.

    This causes a response designed to cool the body down.

    More blood goes to the skin (one of the causes of hot flushes and reddening of the skin) and sweat glands start working (the menopausal sweat).

    I most definitely think that it is perimenopausal symptoms. I don't get hot flashes very often but I do get a lot of the other symptoms. Everyone is different and we all experience symptoms differently. I know some women who have gone through menopause without experiencing any hot flashes. I have found that with all of the symptoms there is always one symptom that is the dominant symptom that I experience mostly. I don't know if this is true for anyone else. Hope this helps.

    Greetings to you dear.  I am in perimenopause and don't get hot flashes, a night sweat nor gray hair so my hormones are in a real state of shock or else it's the calm before the storm.  rolleyes  I had vertigo and very off balance and dizziness for 6 months.  I started the B vitamins and were a great help with these symptoms.  The one is even good for vertigo.  Now I just have fatigue most days. All these symptoms eventually go away and keep telling yourself that this too shall pass.  It's good to keep busy and keep your mind off your symptoms and it will pass even faster I find is true.  Shopping with a good, positive, friend will do wonders. xo

      Yes that fatigue is a real bugger! I experience this too. Right before a period and while ovulating. It's like this unnatural tiredness comes over you and just sits. You feel like you can't do anything.

      Yeah and I have a very rambunctious five year old son and an eighteen month old girl who is newly walking so it's hard to not do anything. I guess it's a good thing to have them around at this time because I need something to  keep me going.

      Hi again dear.  It's good to keep busy and moving.  I am 48 so have no little ones to keep me busy. I have to purposely walk on a treadmill. 😃😃. The fatigue will go eventually.  I will survive......maybe 😁😁😁

      Sorry for the delay. I buy shot-o-b12 by nature's plus from a local independent shop. Expensive but lasts about 3 months and worked for me; bloods showed huge increase in b12 levels.
