Help!!! I'm new to these and losing sleep! Anyone have anything to ease the duration or severity? Or do I just need to put on my big girl shorts and deal with it?!

I kept an ice pack handy. I'd put it on the inside of my wrist. It helped.

I haven't moved into full blown hot flashes yet but my internal oven has been set on high for the pass couple of years. I have started sleeping with a small fan on the floor aimed up. It blows right under my sheets. If I get cold I wrap the blanket around my leg keeping the air out.

Hot flashes/sweating

Switch to Beech Sheets. Cooler and moisture wicking.
Stop wearing pajamas
No sugar or alcohol before going to bed.

They eventually let up. While my internal thermometer still runs hot, I rarely get night sweats any more. Hot flashes once in a while.
