I am perimenopausal - age 51 - last period was 1.5 months ago - I was getting occasional "hot flashes" but without sweating. I was grateful for that! I do not sweat a lot normally. But I always have chills BEFORE I get a hot flash - which seems odd - since it is typically the other way around. But for the past four days - day and night - I am plagued with NON-STOP major chills and goosebumps - followed by hot flashes. If I strip fast enough or hit my body with a blast of cold air - I can stop it. But if I don't - I break out in sweat - all over. If I try and cover up a bit when I am having chills it triggers a hot flash. I can find nowhere on the internet where a woman has CHILLS first AND THEN hot flashes. Anyone else experience this????? I was taking MACCA - and it helped immediately and tremendously --- at first. Now - 2 months later - it doesn't do squat.
