"Sudden wave of intense heat rushing through your body- with the sense of being on fire and sweating profusely. However, within minutes or even hours (in some cases) the feeling passes, and this odd sensation disappears just as quickly as it arrives."
This is how women describe Hot Flashes in general!
What causes these hot flashes so often in menopausal women?
Hot Flashes can be confusing for most women. Especially because it is not a common sensation felt until they hit perimenopause.
Therefore, it is important to understand why you suddenly get these sensations after a certain age. There are 3 common reasons why you start sensing hot flashes:
1) Internal Thermostat During Menopause
When we hit menopause, our estrogen level drops. This affects our hypothalamus which makes our internal thermostat go haywire causing our body temperature to increase drastically. This creates the “hot sensation” all over our body, causing us to sweat and get hot flashes.
2) Stress & Anxiety
Various studies have discovered that hot flashes are tightly linked with stress & anxiety. Anxiety & stress scores were significantly higher amongst women who faced frequent & severe hot flashes. Furthermore, women with moderate anxiety were nearly three times more likely to report hot flashes and women with high anxiety were five times more likely to report hot flashes.
3) Blood Sugar Levels
Low estrogen levels affect the constant change in our blood sugar level. Recent studies have discovered that drop in sugar levels increase hot flashes and night sweats in women.
So naturally now, we start to ponder if there are solutions available for these triggers that affect hot flashes.
Some of the common treatments many women succumb to are:
Hormone Replacement Therapy to increase estrogen levels.
Antidepressants to reduce stress & anxiety which helps reduce hot flashes.
