I can’t belive the hot flashes that I’ve been having lately. They hit me at all times of the day. The worst time is at night.

I’ve been sleeping with a washcloth on my head and face to try to cool down but it does very little. To make matters worse is that heat makes Myasthenia Gravis worse. I am going to have to bite the bullet and go to my doctor to talk about this as it is causing other illnesses including Fibromyalgia to worsen.

I feel weak and shaky during them and for about an hour or so after. Add this to the heat of Florida! I’ve taken to keeping a small battery fan with me.  I feel like a tourist in my own home state! I’m thinking of all kind of hot flash jokes too. Do you have any to share with me to make this time in my life go by a bit easier?

  2. I can certainly relate. I started having hot flashes in the middle 80′s and they are still going strong. I tried HRT, but because of the cancer risk and the history I have, I stopped. I just deal and that is often hard to do.

  3. I’ve been fortunate enough not to have them yet, but I can feel them coming on. I hope you feel better soon. Go to the doctor! :)
