Well, I expected them to be HOT flashes and last night I realized I am having COLD flashes! What the heck?
I've had a handful over the past six months and it didn't occur to me until today these were flashes related to 'the change."
I take the Pill in order to help moderate both my hormones and mirgraines, as well as tame my painful and heavy periods. But I wasn't expecting cold flashes instead of hot flashes.
I also take anti-anxiety meds and so the first fiew times these happened to me I thought I was having an anxiety attack. It never occured to me this had to do with perimenopause.
It literally "flashes" cold from the inside out. I shiver and shake and grab every blanket I can get to wrap myself up. I'm freezing! Last night I had "waves" of cold flashes and I was drenched in a cold sweat when they stopped. I had to change my t-shirt and towel off. It was like I'd worked out!
My poor husband is now asking if we can put separate sheets and blankets on our bed because I grab everything away from him when these hit. I am actually going to do that because I am all ready waking him up with the shrivering and shaking.
Geeze! Just when you think you know what to expect!
Anyone else have cold flashes?
