chills/goosebumps before hot flashes

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.
