My menopause began 23 years ago and I still get hot flushes. It's been like this for all of those 23 years. I can cope during the day - I suppose I'm distracted - but at night I seem to wake up two or three times then get an almost pain-like feeling in my gut - as though everything is squeezing - before the heat begins and then the sweats. The last few nights it's been bad enough with the hot weather without having to cope with this as well. And, of course, it affects my sleep.
I'd welcome any thoughts. Do others have this problem? Is it worth going to the GP? Could I take HRT at my age?
