Does anyone experience an increase in bp and pulse rate before a hot flash happens? Does anyone feel like something is wrong before the hot flash happens?

    My bp is normaly low but just before the flush starts, I can hear the blood in my head. A whoosh whoosh sound. Then it starts. I also experience a restlessness, just before. The heat and sweating follow then as it tails off, I feel like insects are crawling over my hands and sometimes I hear what sounds like a radio on in another room. My pluse definately quickens just before and it all takes a few minutes to settle down. Then, just to make it even worse, sometimes I get cold sweats immediately after. My endocrinologist tells me this is not unusual. !!!

      This happened to me today! I felt drowsy so I took a nap and woke up startled by my phone ringing. My pulse rate increased, I felt weird my chest started hurting and then afterwards I felt cold too. I don't think I got a hot flash right before though. I think I just got startled out of my sleep. I startle easily these days since peri hit.

    I wake up for 'no reason' - then it is like a tsunami of heat rolling in. I feel like my head is going to explode.

    How can you have hot sweats and be cold at the same time?confusedtwisted

    yes. to this.   I really don't know how we are supposed to cope with this mentally as the strange feeling beforehand that something is wrong is very unsettling.  My pulse rate rises but I don't get terrible heat, just hotness but when it is over, I get chills, it is the unsettled feeling beforehand that I find the most difficult to deal with.  I also wake with one every night without fail, from a deep sleep, wide awake.  This I hate the most.
