Hot Flashes?
Tue, 04-30-2013 - 11:00am

Warm weather is finally coming to my part of the 'world'. It is supposed to be in the 80's today. Do you have hot flashes? Do they get worse in the summer?

If you have found ways to help with them, share your tips for others just starting to deal with them. (please no 'spam' Wink Thanks)

Hi Cheryl! I recognize you from another board I like to visit here.

I do have hot flashes and have been so uncomfortable that I finally went to the doctor to discuss HRT. I have been taking it for a while now and I am very happy with the results. I'm nervous over all the studies about HRT and Breast Cancer but my doctor assures me I have very little risk of it since there is no cancer in my family.
