Pacemaker and hot flashes

I had a pacemaker put in about 2 months ago after ungoing 2 ablation procedures for WPW.  I have been experience hot flashes during the night and also a few during the day ever since.  I am wondering if this could possibly be a side effect of the pacemaker or would it be happening anyway due to my age (52) and menopause.

Are you menopausal now? Seems you would have had hot flashes before this. I'm not sure a pacemaker alone would cause hot flashes but perhaps a medication you're taking would. Or it could be coincidence - hormonal changes soon after pacemaker implant. Check with your doctor or pharmacist about any meds you're taking.

my best friend and I both have pacemakers and both of us are under 35. We both have hot flashes.
