I'm 40. Woke up last night all sweaty when it's cold, I think it's hot flash? Is that normal?

  • Yeah, night sweats, not fun. Sometimes people get up and change their sheets and nighwear. I usually threw off the blankets until I was comfortable. In the summer have a fan nearby.

  • Sounds normal to me for menopause, At least...that's what my mom tells me its like! I won't be there for a while. Good luck to you, I hear its horrible :(

  • It's probably related to hormones. I started perimenopause at 37!
