Ladies - Hot flashes

How do you know if you are having a hot flash? Last night, I woke up and was so HOT. I pulled the covers off of me and pulled off my pajama bottoms to get some relief. I debated turning on the ceiling fan, but didn't think my sleeping husband would appreciate that. I always heard stories about women waking up drenched in sweat, but I wasn't sweaty at all - just hot. The whole thing probably lasted less than 10 minutes or so? I feel back asleep and woke up a couple of hours later freezing because I didn't have any covers on me or pajama bottoms. Does that sound like a hot flash? I'm 41, which I guess is old enough to have them? My mom is out of town for the holiday and not super easy to reach or I would call her and ask...lol.

but it does sound like a hot flash. Have you started any new medications lately? Some meds can cause hot flashes.

If they continue I would check with my doctor just to make sure all is well since you are very young for the change.

Yep, that's what I get. Never sweaty, just suddenly hot, or a prickly hot feeling going up my neck to my face during the day at times. 41 is on the young side, but I had a hysterectomy( left in ovaries) at 40 and they started within a few years I think??

It could be a hot flash, a new medicine, or a food allergy. This is how I found out I was allergic to shrimp.

Mine felt like heat had been turned on inside me. Sometimes I had to change pajamas. Mine happened any time, but often at night. It was miserable.

I was 36 when mine started. It was due to ovarian failure linked to some undiagnosed autoimmune issue. My hot flashes stopped after I had a hysterectomy & started estrogen.

I had a hot flash last night as well, but mine was the drenched in sweat type. Yuck.

My hot flashes involve sweat--unfortunately.
