pets22 posted:
I too, get this sensation, only mine radiates from my chest up my back, neck and face. I am 58 yrs. old and suppossedly past menopause. I have been told by my OB/GYN that it never really goes away (lovely). Any thoughts on this matter? My heart was checked out and its good.

Dear pets22,
Hot flash type sensations do tend to get better over the course of time; it can take a while.
Hope these do resolve,
Good luck,
Mary Jane
