I haven't seen anything here that sounds like what i have experienced. At 72 and after a long miserable perimenopause and menopause with horrible severe hot flashes…i am now getting them again only worse. Out of nowhere i will feel hot on my back chest and then all over. I get light headed and the heat in my chest & back becomes so hot and intense its unbearable and then on top of that i have a panic attack. I have ended up calling 911. I went on bio identical hormones but dr. afraid i will have a stroke (which still may happen with those hot flashes). I am now taking Gabapentin but that may ruin my kidneys. Anyone have anything like this that they could share with me? Thank you!
