New: nighttime hot flashes, 3.5 mo out



Recommended Posts

Suppose it's a lack of hormones. I'm almost 46 and have had hot flashes before but it was several years ago. Anyone have natural remedy ideas? Hormones aren't an option. GYN thinks I'm perimenapausal but didn't want to check levels since nothing else really wrong. They are starting to disrupt my sleep. Getting a little frustrating.

I have thought about this...would I have hot flashes after I lose weight? I had a hysterectomy in 2009, I'm 43 years old and I do not have hot flashes, thank God!!! I was told that heavier women have less hot flashes because estrogen stores in fat cells, so if I lose fat would I start getting hot flashes? I have no home remedies, sorry, but I was just going to say I have thought of this as a possible scenario.

They are only happening at night. I'm otherwise less hot and sweaty since losing 75 pounds. I didn't have then last year at my highest. Could just be I'm moving closer to the "end" but just wondering if others have issues.

well, estrogen is stored in fat, so as you lose, you are also bound to lose some of your excess estrogen stores, and essentially regulate the levels of estrogen in your body. the same reason many bariatric patients see a normal period appear within days or weeks of surgery for the first time in a long time...it could be that you are experiencing the 'normal' hormonal shifts expected for you but are noticing it more because your body doesn't have all that stored hormone to rely on!

Are you sweating at night or just getting hot? I started having night sweats and mine ended up being reactive hypoglycemia. I had to adjust my diet at night to fix it. RHG is pretty common in WLS patients.

Just heat. No sweats. It's one of those sudden flashes where you just feel intense heat but no sweating.

I'm think blackcohosh suppliment. ..if my memory is right. I'd Google this...I had hysterectomy in my earlier 30s....

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.
