    Monique, what you are experiening are hot flushes. Not every one gets them in the head only or is generalized. Dont panic, it is something new and it is normal. However, if you are getting worry you should consult with your physician. Also, there is a lot of holistic therapies out there that doesnt required hormone therapy. Good luck!

    Hi Monique, my flashes work from my arms up to the top of my head. I also get cold flashes. I have it bad. If you look on this site you will find that 66 symptoms of perimenopause. I have had 46 of them. It wouldn't be so bad if I would've know a year ago. Like lapixie said if you have concerns called your Dr. I'm going to an ob Drin a few weeks that specialize in menopause I will keep you posted. Good luck

    Hi Monique, sorry but this is the beginning stage of getting hot flashes further down the road. This is how mine started. I would place a cold ice pack on my head, or where ever the heat flash would be. It helps to have an ice pack handy.

      Easier said than done, hon, lol. A cold has nothing to do with your hormones acting up. You may want to consider seeing your doctor sometime in the future about going on something if the symptoms get worse.
