Hi all, I posted last year about night sweats. Well enough is enough, I am 56 and started the menopause at around 48. I have not stopped having flushes during the day and the night sweats are becoming worse. My GP refused last year to let me have HRT as I had a phlebitis around 30 years ago and she was worried about breast cancer. I am sure many of you have seen recently that they now think the benefits outweight the worries. I spoke to my sister yesterday who has been on HRT for 3 years and highly recommends it and lo and behold I found out she had had a DVT 26 years ago (not much of a sister am I not knowing that) so that is my stance when I go next week. My night sweats are horrendous, I wake every couple of hours because of being soaked and them end up going to to loo LOL so sleep is broken nightly. Yesterday walking home at lunchtime I bumped into my neighbour and whilst talking a flush came over me and my glassed steamed up, she looked at me a bit strangely, which was rather embarrasing, So now what happens, do I need blood test, do I start on a low dose and increase and will it stop these rotten aches and pains that I have had since all this started. Any advise greatly received.
