I thought it was because of menopause but I stopped estrogen because I realized it didn't make any difference. I am now 64 yrs. young and when I get the hot flushes people think I am still in menopause. Someone suggested taking an antihistamine to help the sweating. I hope it helps me as I am not getting a good night's sleep . Any ideas please ?
Hello Ivana stock, Your going through menopause. Why are you thinking you have been through it when you were on estrogen? If you were taking estrogen you did not go through menopause while you were on it. Or perhaps you interrupted the menopause with estrogen. If one is on HRT ( Hormone Replacement Therapy)they will not go through menopause. HRT makes a huge difference at any age. What made you believe that the estrogen was making no difference. Enough. Now- It is a good thing you stopped because they have found a connection between HRT and stroke in your later years. My MD took me off my HRT 2 months ago. I am also 64. I am going through horrid hot flashes! My hair is wet. My bra is wet. My crotch is wet, all my clothing is soaked in a hot flash. I am up half the night sweating. Yes, I have heard that Benadryl helps one sleep through the night and some say you just sleep through the sweating? I am trying it a tonight. Estrovera. A product my MD suggested. It is expensive but less expensive than HRT. Amazon carries it and you can read all the reviews.It was working brilliantly for me until I bought a pack of cigarettes! No smoking, no caffeine,a little soy,yoga, acupuncture, weight loss are the 6 most common suggestions. We are both a little too old to be on HRT. Good luck.Let me know if you find something that works. There is Brisdelle but it is an ssni and I am trying to avoid any drugs for this-I simply mop up w/ a bandanna from my purse and carry on.
