Does anyone know how to fix hot flashes and night sweats?

Deos anyone out there know how to fix hot flashes and night sweats? I've been taking Super Evening Primrose for the night sweats which has helped somewhat. I am so miserable. I've been depressed. I've lost my appetite. Don't feel like doing anything. I feel so anxious. My stomach is still very sore since the surgery and being thrown into menopause. My life has been turned upsside down. How come no doctors care or want to hear about it?

Yeah, I lost my appetite as well, very weird that a surgery would cause you to lose your appetite, isn't? Don't think I have lost any wght, b/c drink pop all day..mt dew...that is one of my only vises, and it's a bad one. I'll fix this big dinner for the rest of the family, and won't even eat. or I'll fix a plate of something that sounds good, and when I eat a few bites....yuck and won't finish it!
Don't know how/what to do to fix hot flashes. Maybe a low dose of hormones, just til your body equals out?? They are horrible, had a few nights like that ,nothing really too major, I have one ovary left. I hope every gets back to normal soon.

Hiya Par...

I had a TVH in 2007 ovaries remained, but while my body was in shut-down mode afterwards, I used GNC's Menopause Formula for women.... it helped alot.... Now since surgery Nov 16th which threw me into full blown surgical menopause, I am now on Enjuvia.

Talk to your doc if things dont get better.

Hope things get better! Many hugs!!!

Re: Does anyone know how to fix hot flashes and night sweats?

Hi (((Par))) Is there a reason you are not on HRT? If not, you may want to try it, since many women find that it addresses all of the symptoms you mentioned (myself included).

If your DR is not being supportive at this point, I would see a different DR. Many women find that the brilliant surgeon who did their hysterectomy is not really very good at helping with menopause issues.
