You know what the absolute worst part of menopause is? The hot flushes. I wouldn't actually describe them as hot flushes. It's more like my body has forgotten how to regulate its own temperature. It's sort of like having a bad fever. Hot, cold, hot, cold.
I have to layer my clothes every day because I can never know if I'm going to be boiling hot (i.e. sweating) or freezing cold (i.e. shivering) from one minute to the other. External factors have little to do with it. I can feel cold or hot inside or outside, no matter what the actual thermometer might say.
It may not be the worst problem in the world but it absoluely drives me batty. I'm hoping my natural menaopause pills will soon kick in because this has been pretty bad for the past month or so, since I've gone off the hormone patches.
Why don't men have these problems?
