Move into your freezer! I personally have found little things such as dressing (while @ home) in shorts & a tank top but I always have a sweater close by. I try to always keep a fan blowing in my direction and when I sleep I will put a cold wrap/wash cloth ect on my neck but I stay coverd up with a light blanket. I was having huge issue's during the day when I'd be out & about, which really sucks; so again I always try to dress in layer's so I can remove or add, whenever needed. I also was told by a friend of mine who is a natropathic, that if you rub or hold something cold to your wrist it can relieve the hot flashe's faster. For instance if you have a cold drink hold it to your wrist, or run cold water over it. She gave me a teething ring that I freeze @ night & then keep in my purse, it might look silly @ times but it does help. You can go to home or health stores & try to find something that wont be as noticeable.
