Mary Jane Minkin, MD responded:
Dear Bonton56,
Women experience hot flashes in all sorts of manners; unfortunately for some women, they do have a very severe pattern. If you are experiencing such severe hot flashes, have you checked in with your health care provider for intervention? Certainly, do take part in our site here-lots of recommendations on keeping the room cooler, soy, black cohosh; and then medications if simple remedies don't help.
Good luck,
Mary Jane
