For more than a year I have had nightly 'hots' lasting from 30 to 90 minutes. I do not sweat as long as I remove pijamas fast and get up. Lack of sleep is catching up on my life. I take crestor, coreg, aspirin and .75 levothyroxine daily. Any connection with these drugs please?
Please check for levothyroxine over dosage as this causes heat intolerance and this could account for the hot spells. The thyroid status can fluctuate from hyper to hypothyroidism; you could repeat your thyroid profile to know the current status of your thyroid gland, so that your medication can be appropriately adjusted. You have to ensure to take your medications regularly and you have to monitor the levels of your thyroid status at least once in three months. Discuss this with your consulting doctor.
