For ladies: Hot flashes and fibromyalgia

Jul 02, 2018 1:41 PM

Do you have hot flashes? I had a hysterectomy years ago. I'm 61. My doc says I shouldn't be having hot flashes. So I was wondering if this is a symptom of fibro. TIA

Hi. Personally I started the hot flushes in my early 50s but then newly diagnosed with a number of chronic illnesses, so assumed it was those causing it... then found to have polycystic ovaries and put on HRT. No flushes. Blood test revealed I was post meno in 2010 so came off HRT and immediately the flushes returned, had them ever since and had hysterectomy 2016. Fibromyalgia diagnosed this year. So yes, you can get memo symptoms post meno. Not fun eh?
