Hot AND cold flashes?

Hello.
I'm 51 years old and my periods have become very irregular. The last one I had was on October 26th.

I have always had hot flashes, but the latest thing is that I've been having cold flashes as well. I am freezing and can't get warm. I wrap myself in a blanket and a few minutes later I break out into a sweat and am extremely hot. This happens on and off all day and it's even worse at night.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Jeanne

Absolutely, Jeanne, it's part of menopause. NOT the nice part, LOL.
I find myself chilly and then totally overheated within moments, and then once the sweat dries I am chilly again. You're not alone! Miserable, ain't it?

blessings, Sue

Jeanne!!!! Going thru exact same thing - I HATE IT...and yes, it's way worse at night. 2 years now and counting - its ruining my life...and I am too afraid to take hormones ...I have other health issues and problems tolerating all types of medications, so I sweat and freeze; sweat and freeze.......
