If not hot now fast heart beat
If not hot NO fast heart beat in regards to stomach bloating.
Heart beat will only happen after a few minutes of over heating from my testing the other night.
Men do have hot flashes too. They can get them if undergoing treatment for prostrate cancer using anti-testosterone therapy, using thermal blankets and from alcohol, hot liquids and other substances. If either estrogen and testosterone are withdrawn a rapid increase in skin temperature due to dilatation of the skin blood vessels can occur very frequently. While these hormones protect from frequent hot flashes, many other events and ingested substances can also cause the skin vessels to rapidly dilate and release heat. Alcohol, other food additives and just eating a large meal itself can cause hot flashes. Many prescription drugs such as anti-hypertensives and mood altering drugs such as anti-depressants or anti-anxiety medications can also cause hot flashes.
Try to avoid individual triggers (such as strong emotions, caffeine, alcohol, cayenne, occlusive clothing, in your case- heat); Use fans to cool you down and wear clothing made of natural and light materials such as cotton. Practice deep, slow abdominal breathing, in conjunction with onset of hot flashes. And exercise or walk, swim, dance or bicycle every day for more than 30 minutes but not within 3 hours of bedtime. Increased heart beat, on the other hand, can be due to a lot of causes. This may be due to caffeine, anxiety, lack of sleep, among others. A consult with your doctor for some tests may eliminate other pathologies such as cardio or hyperthyroidism.
Take care and keep us posted.
I definitely get a hot flash and palpitations when I eat dairy products. If I have dairy at dinner time, I will awaken about 2 in the morning with all-over tingling, pounding heart, sudden hot feeling, and a stuffed nose. Nowhere have I seen these listed as allergy symptoms, but it is very clear in my case. Hope this helps.
I too have had hot flash insomnia related to diet. When in my thirties I realized that tomato sauce based foods would cause me to heat and wake between 2 and 4 in the morning. It would take 2 to 4 hours for the symptoms to pass. I also found inconsistency in that it did not happen every time. At first it seemed to be only tomato sauce from a can. Jarred sauce did not cause the reaction. But as I have aged, it seems the reaction has evolved. I can only guess that how it is prepared and combined with can effect how my body responds. Now in my fifties, I expect the reaction and am pleased when it does not occur. It can be worse during certain seasons as I react to cedar pollen and try not to tax my body with two issues at the same time. I love hot sauce and salsa. Some create a problem and others don't. Pizza and spaghetti cause my issue where chili never does; go figure. The more I pay attention and learn, it becomes my own game of investigative exploration. If I ever find what neutralizes the tomatoes impact, I will duplicate as often as possible. Only recently has a fresh tomato caused my hot flash. Not all tomatoes do. Why? Is it acidity? Could it be how long the tomato is cooked? Good luck on your personal quest. I have also found that a steady intake of flax seed oil has greatly improved my immune system.. This takes months to maximize but has eliminated my need for doctors and pharmaceuticals.
