Can Hot Flashes Happen Just At Night?

Just wondering if what I'm experiencing IS hot flashes or something else. I'm 44 years old and some people say oh your too young. I don't know. I've had 2 pituitary surgeries and basically no pituitary so all those hormones are really messed up!!!

I'm having TVH, A&P repair and monarc TOT sling on Nov 2nd (think I got all those acronyms right - LOL). Still curious if I AM starting early menopause though.

Mostly I freeze to death!! Keep a throw over me all the time. The only time I get these "hot flashes" is in the middle of the night, anywhere between 1 - 4 am and it's just a flood a hot that goes over me and doesn't last very long . . . but I come out from under ALL covers!! Burning up, fanning! Then I'm freezing again! Sometimes I break out in a sweat and sometimes not. When it first started happening I was convinced that I had leukemia! LOL My grandmother did so it scared me to death!!!

This is hot flashes, isn't it?

I woke up this morning with my hair ringing wet. Just curious if anyone has an idea.

Re: Can Hot Flashes Happen Just At Night?

I too have night sweats. My doctor said they are nighttime hot flashes. I used to have them occasionally over the past year or so but since the TAH surgery (and even though I kept my ovaries) it is severe. I have gotten up at night to change pajamas a few times because they are so soaked I couldn't go back to sleep. And my hair is so wet I had to blow dry it the other night. My doctor says that it will settle down as my ovaries start working again (ovaries get traumatized by the surgery). The past two nights have been better and I am on day 17 now. It's wierd, I only had one day where I broke out in a sweat during the day. I guess that was a daytime hot flash. I didn't know a person could sweat so much!

Stock up on might need more than one pair per night

Yep, hot flashes. That's not an unusual age. I had them on and off for yrs from about that age. They are a nuisance, esp at night. A fan by the bed helps, or with remote control, to turn off as you freeze afterward. Also I had towel on the pillow. Consider a Chillow or similar product, they can really help.
