Hi lisa, A hot flash feels like a warm sensation on the back of your neck,ears and the front of your chest. It can leave you feeling quite sweaty. kimmy

Re: what does a hot flash feel like?

When I have a full on hotflash coming on it does several things...I feel nauseated, a little dizzy or light headed, I get real HOT and then suddenly cool and may need to cover up. It's weird, but I just tell myself it is hormonal.

Re: what does a hot flash feel like?

I get very hot, mostly in my chest and face, want to rip off my clothes and sit in front of a fan. I get chilly afterward too, and feel somewhat claustrophobic. I take it in as part of life, and try not to focus on it.

Hi writeleft, It was so good to read your post saying that you 'takei t in as part of life'. I too do the same with everything to do with the menopause. Because that is exactly what it is - part of the life - it's a natural thing that is happening. I get quite concerned when I see so many women treating menopause like it is an illness. I know sometimes it can be a nuisance - but it is a normal thing.

Re: what does a hot flash feel like?

I feel a flushing moving up my neck into my face, then I get really hot and want to tear any clothing away from my neck. I sweat and get very red. Just so lovely and attractive. I get the looks from people so I just have to laugh about it being just another day in paradise. Sometimes I get cold afterwards. In bed I almost panic until I get the covers off. Poor chihuahuas often are sent flying.
