Hot Flashes

Hot flashes are one of the common symptoms of the menopausal change as the body naturally rebalances the hormonal levels during that period in life.  This may be during menopause, premature menopause, or induced menopause.  They can also occur at times other than menopause if there are significant changes in hormonal levels.

Usually the face becomes flushed and red and there is suddenly a feeling of being very warm or hot in the face, neck, and/or chest.  This may also be accompanied by perspiration, chill, or an increased heart rate.  The intensity and frequency varies widely with different individuals.  Some experience very uncomfortable hot flashes multiple times a day where others may have mild annoying experiences only multiple times a week.  Hot flashes with intense perspiration at night are called night sweats.
