    Hi Gail,

    Have you recently taken any new medication?, if so hot sweats can be a side effect. Are you anxious about anything? or are you excited about something?

    I had hot flashes when I took a certain med, I used to sweat profusely. I stopped

    taking them for that reason. Do you drink alcohol frequently or coffee? I know

    too much can cause you to sweat. Hope you get to the bottom ofthe cause of your hot flash.  Kind regards.

      Hi Lilian05079

          Thanks for your reply. I don't drink at all and never have smoked. When these surges came on a few months ago (6-7) I was having stomach problems, found gallstones and had gallbladder removed July 11th and for 2 weeks after the surgery, the surges went away, but they are back again. When I first started to tell doctor about the surges, she switched me over to Wellbutrin , Co10 w/ vit. E. I do have an appt. with my doctor next month. Also, my vit. D is very low on all levels so I have been put on a large dose once a week for 12 weeks. Also, have been on medicine for cholesterol for quite awhile.

    Hi Gail,

    Are you taking statins? if so they do cause sweating that's why I stopped them.

    Read your leaflet that came with the statins, (if that is what your taking) and look at the side effects. If they are causing you to get severe hot flashing go see your GP. Regards.

    Hi Gail,

    The Zetia could well be causing the hot flashes. Make an appointment with your GP

    and discuss it. Kind regards.

    Has anyone found a solution , interestingly I also have had gallbladder removed and seem to have gained gut issues since so I'm wondering if this could be a vagus nerve respone
