Unhappy hot flashes?

I am 50, Recently at night 1 or 2 times I will wake up and my entire back and abdomen are burning (feels like I have muscle rub all over-That type of burning) it lasts 10-20 min and is gone...no sweating though. Could this be hot flashes?

Re: hot flashes?

Hot flashes can be caused by a variety of things...and just for your info, men get them, too. Best not to assume it's menopause without checking it out with the old doc first.

From personal experience, I know that some medications and some vitamins cause hot flashes or flushing. I also know that some conditions cause similar reactions...thyroid disease, lyme's disease come immediately to mind but perhaps, an advanced search of the open boards would alert you to other causes.

I think it is interesting that you experience these without sweating.
