Why do women’s’ menopausal body temperature, heartbeats and tempers go hay wire?
Is there any remedy?
This symptom that happens around the beginning of menopause is called 'hot flushes' or 'flashes' - the sudden change in temperature, facial or neck reddening, the feeling of temperature change are all due to sudden but self remitting changes in the blood vessels under the skin ( like flushing when embarrassed or angry). This is due to change in hormones -
Non medical treatment includes regular exercise, cooling clothes, drinking plenty of water, massage, leisurely baths, Vit B supplements, weight loss, yoga and reducing coffee and alcohol.
Medical (drug) treatments range from Hormone replacement therapies, SSRI type drugs ( citalopram) and a drug called clonidine- these are only preferred if the symptoms are real bad as most flushes settle after a few months and rarely continue for years.
Hope this helps.

If you take Tylenol for pain, does it also lower body temperature as it does with fever?
