So I am going to describe this down to a T. I want to know if anyone else experiences a "hot flash/flush" like this.
I will start to get a feeling of warmth in my upper arms and legs, sometimes feel like my lower stomach is starting to squeeze or, almost like a period cramp, I may feel a little breathless then it intensifies and I may feel like my hands and feet are getting cold, I start to ache all over and then the heart starts to flip flop in my chest. Doesn't matter if I am lying down, sitting or standing up. It can last to a couple of minutes up to half hour. Sometimes a wooshing sound in my head too. I also feel like blood isn't getting to my feet and hands but can't really tell if that is the case. Sometimes I feel like its my stomach as well and sometimes am shaky and weak afterwards and even sometimes feel like I need to do a poop.
Does this sound like a hot flash? This is what the doctor says is a hot flash but I am not sweating, I feel like if someone looked at me I would look pale not hot. Can't stand it, been going through it for over a year now and its not getting any better.
