Can a hot flash cause rise in blood pressure?

Dear Anon_12911,

That's a great question! It sort of sounds like it could, but I'm not a doctor and am just guessing.

How about asking your doctor to get an expert answer? There also may be some help in this article on Hot Flashes .

Yours in health,

This is a great question. I am not sure either, but if you have a home monitoring BP machine you could take your BP. I am pretty much past the flashing stage. The only hot flash I get any more is from Niacin, which is worse that any hot flash I ever had.
