    Hot flushes, yes. That creep up on me then pow, I am shedding my clothes. Some advice: wear layers! Hot flushes are one of the most common symptoms of menopause and can continue into post menopause.

    Not sure about cold. I guess our whole temperature regulation is f**ked! After all, when women have periods their core temperature rises. So temperature regulation is hormone related.

    If your thyroid checks out ok then I’d say for sure they are hot flashes.

    Thank God I'm past the hot flash stage! Finally! I just realized one day I hadn't had one in a month. I've always been cold natured so that's nothing new for me. But many women on this forum(including myself have complained of inside tremors, like you're shaking on the inside).  I can only tell you that this too shall pass. In the meantime try deep breathing and mediation. You might also try taking magnesium and adding turmeric to your food, both are good for anxiety, but be sure and put black pepper in your food, it helps your body to absorb the turmeric better.  Most of us try to go natural , but sometimes it works some times it doesn't. I'm currently taking a mild antidepressant/sleep aid called Trazodone, and I do have Valium if I hit a rough patch(I only take the Valium as needed). 

    But on the flip side, I drink plenty of water, the turmeric(which combined with the Trazodone has really helped me sleep better), I take an over 50 multivitamin for women, and fish oil. I stretch every day, and take the stairs at work. You are not alone. ((((((hugs))))) I does get better.

    Is it 'hot flushes' or 'hot flashes'? I looked it up and wiki says it's either. I prefer flushes because you become flushed with heat. A hot flash is something men get arrested for!

    In other posts lots of women swear by sage suppliments for hot flushes. Interestingly, I have been taking sage and my hot flushes have stopped. But then, I am also using ovestin cream so that might have something to do with it. And then there is also the up and down unpredictable roller coaster of menopause ... I had hot flushes every few hours when my periods stopped for 6 months but now my periods have started again (and they are REGULAR damn it!), the hot flushes have stopped. So I can't say for certain it is the sage. But it is just a garden herb, so it can't do any harm to try it.

    I must admit I do not think I am out of the woods yet, not at all.

    Yess... I usually start out cold at night, getting into bed freezing. I put on my footies, but then about an hour into the night, I wske up hot, and pulling off the socks and sometimes the blankets too. It's normal to feel cold and tge feverish. I feel I take my trmperture every night. I start off at 97.6 and then about 98.6. So weird, but very normal.

    Depending on your age and when your last period was, you can be menopausal. And yes hot and cold is very common. Cut back on Caffeine, Sugars, Alcohol and meditate. But if these are real hot flashes, you may need hormones.

    For the last few months I have had times where I feel like I am coming down with the flu, but don't. I have had loads of blood tests and they were all normal so I am putting it down to another symptom of this hell.
