What you have described is most certainly one form of "hot flash".  We can each do hot flashes a bit differently from the way our friends do them though, and even change the way we do them, so what you are currently experiencing may switch on you before long!!  Please visit our Menopause Oasis to read up on this lovely stage of life.  There is a page there dedicated entirely to hot flashes and night sweats!  Just click on this link to go straight there!

Please know that you are welcome here anytime; to vent (it really can help!); to ask questions; to share experiences; or to just hang out with other gals who understand and care.

Remember, there are NO dumb questions regarding menopause!
