hot flushes

Helloah!

Over the last 3 weeks or so I have been getting hot flushes/flashes... it is as if someone has plugged me into a heater for 2-3 mins, I go red faced and I break into a clammy sweat, especailly around my forehead. Sometimes there are bouts of dizziness with the flush but sometimes not. When the flush is over, I am pretty much back to normal most of the time... they are happening daily between 3 -7 times a day. I have also been having nasty headaches, including 2 Migraines, in the same time frame.

I think I read somewhere on here that it could be the female hormone being released as we lose weight that causes this...

Or, is it hormonal? My monthly cycle is all over the place; never two mths the same ranging from 27 days to 45 days! No pattern, no prediction!

Has anyone else had this ... ?

Any advise greatly rec'd - as always!

I have been getting these kind of hot flashes for the last 3 months. I figured I was probubly menopausal as I am 51. Check with your doc you could be perimenopausal, there is a test they can do to check for this.

It kind of sounds like hypoglycemia to me. Ask your doctor, and maybe you can check your blood sugar at home while you have this "flashes". Keep us posted.

Thanks... I didn't get this until recently and I am now 7+mths out... I am 39 (40 in April) and I did start thinking it was menopause type symtoms, that scared me 'cos I am frightened that it will slow my weight loss even further!

After a bad flush I get really tired and sleepy... then after 30mins or so I am ok... someone also mentioned blood pressure? (am really stressed in work at the moment!)

I have booked an apptment with my doc so I will let you know what he says x

I've been having night sweats since about 4 months out. I figure it's pre-menapause, but it SUCKS!!!

I'm cold all the time, but when I'm dead asleep, I'm burning up. My husband teases and says I'm "One hot chick in bed!" B)

      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
