Hot flashes non menopause related?
6 Replies
belong2 - November 12

Has anyone else experienced violent temperature changes not related to menopause or external environment (ie shower etc)?
I could be sitting in class, walking, sleeping, and all of a sudden I am sweating and just unbelievably hot, I don't know what it is.
I have been trying to teach myself biofeedback to help control it.
Anyone else?

Yes - I was having quite a problem with that for awhile. FMS basically breaks the body theromstat. I have a very hard time controling my temp. It can be 95 and I'm freezing. Any degree of stress can bring on a violent temperature change - usually sweating. I'm completely heat intolerant and now waiting to see what this winter is going to bring. Take care.

YES! I have been suffering with severe flushing or HOT FLASHES for a long time. I am beyond menopause and this has been a major problem and concern for me. I found out that I had low vitamin D and my doctor gave me a prescrition to bring it up to normal but now I no longer need the prescription. I had a parathyroid tumor removed and that helped but I still get the hot flashes off and on so I am wondering if it is from FMS! These often come on for no reason but I have also noticed that they can come on when I get stressed. Either way, they are miserable. I sweat so bad that my hair gets saturated as though I have been in the shower. It sometimes happens in my sleep! Anyone else have this problem?

Besides, what the others wrote and could be the cause too, mine was due to a new med the doc put me on. I thought I was going through menopause but, had that checked and found I wasn't. Went off the sweating. Could you be doing or taking any thing different? It is an icky feeling to go throughI know. Hope you can narrow it down!

Yes--my 12 year old has this happening to her more frequently. Hot and sweaty all of a sudden. Also, has cold feet and hands alot of the time.
It must be the nervous system out of whack... due to the fibro.

LOL. Oh yes! Although, now that i'm 45 I'll be experiencing both.

With fibro...I just play it off as weird auto-immune stuff.

I have been finally told by a doctor that yes, your nervous system does control body temperature !!! I thought I was nuts, had my hormones/thyroid checked and all normal... I think I will give Lyrica another try, just don't like the side affect I get ( weird and audible dreams ) But I just cant stand the nausea and extreme hot flashes...... Prayers for all of us with this horrible affliction
