I'm am going through menopause & have real bad hot flashes approximately every 30 minutes, & all through the night. I was on an Estrogen patch to control these. And they were controlled very well. I was doing great! But then the Estrogen started causing real bad leg pains. Therefore, I had to go off of it. Now the hot flashes are back. And I need another solution for the hot flashes before I go crazy!!! Does anyone have a solution?

  • you can check with a new type of doctor, a Preventative Doctor...they run so many hormonal tests that they can pin point a specific formula for you to take...I know one in California if you can get to him..however, you have to be careful about blood clots in your legs...it looks like you had some issues with it so be sure and inform future doctors of that reaction....I tried everything when I was going through it and nothing really helped much. I settled on one product called "Hot Flash" that you can purchase in health food stores--and I tried them all...there are all kinds of teas and things...oh, another is ginseng but you have to get the best because the cheap stuff is useless...I would get this if I was going through it again:http://www.hsu.com/ this is the best...acupuncture might help..
