Hello... I'm not certain of any vitamins that are helpful for this, I'm sure some other members will be able to recommend some great suggestions for you, but I just wanted to give you a non-medication suggestion since you seem to be searching for something natural to help you as opposed to something pharmaceudical. Peppermint oil (theraputic grade, essential oil- made by a good company like Young Living ~ http://www.youngliving.com/en_US/index.html) may provide relief from cramps when applied topically (try diluting with a "carrier oil" first, as peppermint oil can be potent, before trying it straight- you can use olive oil to do this).
Also, I have read in an online article recently a story of a woman whose family was without a/c for some period of time in a hot climate. She took a spray bottle of water, added a few drops of peppermint oil, and discovered great relief for her and her family from the heat after they would spray/mist themselves with this concoction occasionally. I suspect that this could help you with your hot flashes. If you are interested, just check out peppermint oil uses on any search engine for other ways to use/ other remedies this is beneficial for (topical use, inhalation, in a soak or bath, even ingested- a drop in a glass of water). I would recommend this for deep aches/ cramps, but not for surface pain/ burning skin pain (Dr Bronner's Magic Peppermint organic lotion is great for that, however). Lavander oil is another great oil to have on hand, and is pretty much the staple oil to alleviate tons of symptoms and pains (also has a calming effect when inhaled or rubbed into the bottom of your feet, great for baths as well- may help your mood). Sorry to ramble! Hope you find something to help soon...
I read long ago that B6 ( pyroxidine) helps with pms, nausea, and carpal tunnel syndrome. It help reduce excess fluid, so, it should help with pain by getting rid of inflammation. I also took it to reduce nausea during pregnancy, I am not sure it did much for the nausea though. B vitamins are excreted in sweat and urine and are not likely to build up and be toxic although I am not sure what would be considered a high dose. I took about 200 mgs per day.
