Thank you for your response. I sure hope this doesn't go on for years, I'm already losing it. I went to the health food store and bought a bunch of supplements, some containing black cohosh and after taking it for four days, the hot flashes actually became less freqent and less intense.
I am thrilled that something is working. I still don't sleep at all, but at least I'm more comfortable.
I have a new issue that is concerning me. I feel that I'm more confused lately, and forgetfull. I left the curling iron on the other day, and I left my truck running for an hour and a half, I thought I had turned it off but I hadn't. I hope I'm not getting some kind of dementia, I hope its the peri that is doing this to me.
