Did perimenopause cause you to be hot then cold all the time overnight?
I am struggling with some issues at night. After about 7pm or so, my inner thermostat has a meltdown and I go from hot to cold to hot to cold. My poor husband - I freeze him out of the room at night some nights lol. Other nights he ends up buried under all the blankets... It's like cyclical every couple of hours I go from one extreme to the other. Is there anything that helps this? (not medications) or is it something I just have to ride out until I finally go through the change? Could it be something other than hormonal? I've heard of hot flashes at night - this is back and forth though.
I understand how you feel and I am sympathetic. It happened to me since I turned fifty and at times my hot flushes are worse than others. But since I reduced my caffeine intake, it had stopped. Only comes very rarely now. If you drink coffee or tea, it really helps to reduce the amount you are drinking or even better if you change this to green tea instead. I think caffeine makes it worse. I don't take any medication for it. It will go eventually. I wish you luck.
I almost hate to answer this because women think I can't relate to any of this. I had a complete Hysto in my 40's...long time ago. I refused HRT & my Dr is fine with whatever her patients choose to do.I reasoned that should I feel anything became a serious issue, I'd research all of the homeopathic means, of which there are many.
However, apparently my "luck" is genetic because my mother, my sister and I never had so much as a simple symptom due to menopause. Nothing. I have been with women who were experiencing hot flashes and I feel so badly I can't help them. It seems they are so uncomfortable. Also, it looks like they get very upset over it.
What I will suggest to you Christin, is any of Suzanne Somer's books.....even just borrow one from your library. I have heard repeatedly that her info and advice is the best. I did a little snooping online and discovered that she did extensive research, to include conferring with numerous Top physicians and professionals in Natural supplements, used herself as a guinea pig and was able to improve her quality of life enormously...so she shared her wisdom in books. Check her books out.
The only other thing I know is that my sister-in-law suffered terribly with flashes and the only thing that helped her was a cream or salve of Primrose oil......she just rubbed some on her arms and legs b-4 bed and claims it was great. Good luck...I hope you get a handle on this, so you can get some sleep!......UP+++
I have never experience perimenopause. However, after doing research I find it very amusing that some people go through this, and it makes it very difficult for them
Seldom is my internal thermostat cold to freezing. I am mostly hot and have night sweats. I am now 60 and have been going through perimenopause for a while. However, my internal thermostat has stabilized somewhat and can be classified as quite normal.
