If I was a car, it would be a fairly simple fix. I appear to have broken thermostat and it's making my life somewhat difficult.
Two years ago, when I went through menopause, I had night sweats. They were unpleasant, for sure, but I made it through them, almost willing to put up with them for the bliss of never having another period.
Now, in the last few months, I am having hot flashes again--not just at night, but during the day. Even worse, they alternate with intense freezing spells. I am so cold, it's like I can't get warm. Today, I had four blankets, a husband, a dog, and two hot packs and I was still so cold, I didn't want to move. No, no fever. No anemia. Just so damn cold. Then, in less than a full second, I can be swept over by another hot flash. Grrrrrrrrr.
This does not for a good night's sleep make, believe me. On a good night, it happens to me twice. On a bad one, five or six.
So, if you're out and about and you happen along a new human thermostat, could you pick one up for me? I'd be really grateful.
