I have been suffering from what I have thought wer perimenipause hot flashes. I just accepted them until this year when I can't take it anylonger. Theser are long lasting - three hours at a time is not uncommon. I am so hot my hair is wet, my back has sweat running down it, all the wonderful side effect of major heat. My family doc and my obgyn have been working together to figure this out - it is NOT hormonal according to my obgyn. They suggested a TB test which came out fine. Now they are suggesting a chest xray for possible cancer (Lymphoma). Reading the symptoms, I don't have any of them. Seems like a waste of time to me but I am going. My next stop is going to by to a holistic doc. Any idea what may be wrong with me if it is not hormonal?

  • It could be hormonal, just not lady hormones. Have your adrenal glands and adrenal hormones been checked? They can make you sweat like crazy if something is off. Look up Addison's disease it may be that or something similair. Also if your pituitary gland in your brain is not working properly or if you have an underlying benign tumor it may be to blame. Good luck to you.

  • If this is the cause, blaze, then you'll agree that the symptoms should be more common, consistent, and correlated with cell phones, cell phone towers, wifi networks, microwave ovens, etc.
