Hot Flashes
Is there a doctor who can explain why I get hot flashes on a daily basis, often 60 minutes from each other?  During the day they are often timed 60 minutes from each other.  I usually get between 10-12 hot flashes during the day and usually about two during the night.

Is there possibly other underlying reasons why they are so predictable.  (I've stopped wearing a watch, as I know what time of day it is because of when my hot flashes happen.)  

Do any other women have this happen to them?

The most common cause of hot flashes is menopause and hot flashes are the most common thing that brings women in menopause to the doctor. Your symptoms are very often and must be affecting your life.

First get a blood test for FSH. If elevated it will diagnose menopause. Talk with your doctor about treatment choices. Consider estrogen and estrogen alternatives. Also lifestyle changes such as increasing exercise, lowering stress and drinking plenty of water. With some guidance, it should be able to help you control or reduce your symptoms and feel much more comfortable.

I completely feel for you. I am going through the exact same thing. It really intrudes on your life. Are you taking any hormones or have you tried anything to lessen them?

I feel your pain. I have them every day also. Not too bad during the day but just about every hour during the night. It is frustrating. Hang in there though.
