Hot flashes question.

I had my first panic attack back in august, and I have a constant lightheaded feeling all the time, which can every so often be accompanied with hot flashes, and kind of 'jello legs' when I'm walking around somewhere. Now.. In the winter here, while it's pretty cold and hot flashes only last temporarily, it's pretty bad, but not awful. I'm worried about when summer comes and it's like 90 degrees outside, and wondering if hot flashes get about 100x worse when you're in hot weather to begin with? I used to love the summer last year, but now I seem to have developed a random sensitivity to heat.

  • I had hot flashes when I was menopausal. I live in Fiji, so its always pretty hot here. I hardly noticed that I was having flashes, unless I was in an air conditioned room...then it was much more noticeable, and the flashes seemed to last longer. I don't know about anxiety hot flashes, but if they are anything like mine, you should look forward to summer! good luck.
