Hot flashes is a sensation of heat that spreads throughout the body, which is often felt most strongly in the head and neck area. The temperature of the body at this time can appreciably rise, and the pulse slightly increase. The skin may turn red or blotch. In most cases, simultaneously begins profuse sweating.
The tides can be followed and last from 30 seconds to several minutes. Although hot flashes are a characteristic symptom of perimenopause( menopause), some diseases can sometimes also cause a feeling of heat. The intake of certain medications, spicy foods, alcohol consumption is also associated with the occurrence of tides.
Although the exact cause of the tides is not fully understood even by physicians, the tides that occur during menopause are thought to be caused by a decrease in the level of estrogen and a combination of hormonal and biochemical fluctuations. Tides can often begin before menstrual irregularities and menopausal symptoms, that is, it is the first harbinger of menopause. Up to 40% of women aged 40 with regular menstruation say that they have hot flashes. Tides can sometimes be accompanied by increased night sweating( episodes of dousing then occur at night).
Tides can also occur in men. Most often, they result from a sharp drop in testosterone levels in men whose testicles have been surgically removed( as part of prostate cancer treatment), or who take drugs that counteract the effects of testosterone.
