I was wondering if anyone has hot flashes at the age of 34. I have been having them for about 4 years I think. The only thing is when I get one I feel sweaty, hot face feels beat red and I feel like I'm going to pass out and throw up. Is this a hot flash or something else? Doctors say I'm too young and give me xanax. I still get them and they are always the second half of my cycle the closer I get to my period and night sweats start the week before my period and during my period. Any help?
