Hot Flashes?

Recently, I've been getting hot flashes that then turn into me feeling drained and nauseated. I usually have to sit in front of an air conditioner and drink some water, and then after 5-10 minutes the feeling passes. Nothing seems to be triggering them, like yesterday I was riding in a car and was JUST fine a few minutes before. I keep snacks with me and snack on a regular basis (nuts, fruit, fiber bars, etc).

Any ideas? Anyone else experiencing these?

I used to get something like that during my first pregnancy- although I would also feel like my heart was beating weird. But, it would happen to me if I had a really hot shower (which I love, so I would keep doing it, and then basically having to take a nap after I did it, because it would set me off), or if I was really rushing around too much. I don't think it ever happened when I was just doing nothing. The only thing that helped me was drinking some water, and then to just lay down and rest.

((HUGS)) that doesn't sound fun at all! No experience with it-- but I hope it goes away quickly.

Maybe a preview of the mess we'll be in at menopause Wink
