thank you for that ladybud. i know that i am in menopause. hot flashes started at age 43. i was on hormones but they had bad side affects. i am not taking them at all. i had been tested about 4 years ago for thyroids and everything was normal. maybe it is time to get these things re-checked because things change, especially the thyroids.
