LENGTH OF HOT FLASHES

Edited , 4 users are following.

Hi all - I have been on this forum so many times its unreal, but i am just curious how long your hot flashes last - My major hot flashes always come on between 1:00 am & 5:00 am & from the time i start to experience it until i am finally calmed down can be like almost 2 hrs. I have spoke before about how my hot flashes consist mainly of burning back & chest, but last night it felt like i had gasoline running thru my veins & even my intestines - It eventually calmed down, & it came on at 2:30 am & lasted until 4:30 - what a strange sensation - i just feel exhausted today - has anyone else experienced this? i am just wondering if this is something else all together - so over trying to figure it all out - thanks!

    I get two in a half hour period. It can start with just feeling a little queezy, then the heat spreading through my chest, neck upper arms and upper legs, sometimes I feel short of breath, every time I have irregular heart and its like it comes to a point before settling down. Sometimes that point comes to a headache which goes away after it accompanied by chills, ice cold hands and feet. I don't sweat at all. I do get the occasional night sweat but overall, its a daily occurrence with the flashes. So over it!
