    I haven't experienced that since menopause 20 years ago, so I don't think it has anything to do with COPD, but who knows?   I wouldn't think it's anything to go to the hospital for, but maybe check with your doctor and on the manufacturers' websites to see if it's a side effect of any of your medication.

    I'm wondering if it could be your blood pressure, but I'm not a doctor, just speculating

      Hi Jude don't think it's the menopause I am a pensioner of 68 so I'm sure I'm well over the menopause lol, never entered my head about COPD , I do have high blood pressure though, but as I said it has happened a couple of times , but this one for some unknown reason it frightened me  that I was going to take myself to the hospital and I'm not one to run to the hospital over little thing I keep away from as much as pos, but thanks for replying to me

      Ha, I'm also 68 and a pensioner -[ snap!   And I do occasionally still get hot flushes when I have the occasional drink of alcohol, but  nothing like what you're talking about.

      Do you have one of those home bp testers?  They're fairly cheap and when mine was high I used to check it every couple of days or so, I don't bother much now that it seems to be under control with a combination of exercise, medication and meditation.

      Take care

      hi Shirley no the fan dont keep me awake due to the medication im on and i have it not to close to the bed has its a floor standing one so my advice would be to take your meds an hour before you go to bed have a cool bath/shower  and also turn your fan on so the room is cool and if that dont work get advise from your gp

    It really does sound like menopause...how old are you Shirley66944? Or medication related. I don't think it's just COPD related at all.

      I'm sorry shirley, I posted previously before reading that you are 50 .....but you also say that you are all done with menopause...but how can you be sure? Menopause can last several yrs with just some symptoms here and there stretched out over years. I'm 55 and I still get some night sweats sometimes which I know is probably post menopausal or at the end of it hopefully. I have really been blessed and that's just about the only symptom I ever get or got...the night sweats. I wake up soaked with sweat...but I don't have the headache. I think it's very individual but if I were a betting woman, I would bet you are still going thru it. Very few woman are totally done with menopause at 50, in fact, most are just coming into it at that age. Your Dr can perscribe some hormones therapy if you wanted that or just deal with it. It will get less and less. Please keep us posted.....
