Hot Flashes/Cold Flashes?

Hi Everyone,
I had a TVH keeping my ovaries Jan.22nd. Even though I kept my ovaries they are not working, so I am in full menopause. I am having a hormone test taken tomorrow to determine what I need.
My question is, does anyone also seem to be cold as well as hot all the time. I seem to get a hot flash, face turns red, then 10 minutes later I am freezing cold with goose bumps everywhere? I am either nearly naked, then 10 minutes later have 4 layers of clothes on. Has anyone else experienced this?

Hot Flashes/Cold Flashes?

Hi Michele!

I have read that the typical hot flash often leads to a chill. Me, I just stay hot.

You might want to take a look at the many very helpful and interesting articles in the HORMONE JUNGLE.

Hang in there, sweetie ~ many of us know exactly where you're coming from! Best wishes as you work with your DRs to find your hormonal balance!

Hot/Cold Girl

Hey, Im not alone!! TAV/BSO 3/4/03
I too am having these strange spells. I will be burning up one minute, so I will strip down to hardly nothing. Only to run to my closet a few minutes later to put on sweat pants and shirt, socks and mittens if I can find them!! My DH thinks the doctor must have messed with my thermostat during surgery! LOL
Strange because here it is 1:45 am and Im online because I had a very Hot spell and couldnt sleep. But sitting right here beside me is a pair of pants and a warm shirt, for when my "heater" shuts off.
Does this stop? I guess I should tell my Dr. when I go back for my first visit on 4/9.
Any suggestions on how to until then would be MUCH appreciated

My dog, Oscar Mayer

Hot and Cold

I get the same thing and mine mostly happen at night. I just thought I was getting chills from being newly post op. I guess it's not just I am taking hormones so hopefully it will go away when it all gets regulated.

Hi Michele,
Girl- can I ever relate to what you're going through! I also had
a TVH on 12-19-02/kept ovaries. At work ( I'm a teacher )- I
am mostly cold. I always dress in layers-pants,turtleneck,and
sweater or fleecy top/because I'm freezing/although,in the last week-I've noticed a few times at work/a nasty hot flash snuck
through/and I peeled off the layers. I did get a few strange looks-LOL. When I get home, that's when the HOTSIE'S ( as my son )
likes to call them really hit! I jump into a cool shower/and then
put on my summer p.j.'s. I wish I could walk around naked/
but I live with my 24 yr. old son-so no can do! I'm not on HRT.
At night, I sleep with a cold washcloth around my neck. Why
don't you check out the posts in the No Hormone Oasis Forum,
to see how other sisters handle this. Good Luck to you-and you are
definitely not alone!
