I am brand new to this forum. I am 44 (phew) and I have a 7 year old son and a 5 year old daughter. I was wondering if any of you have experienced hot flashes. I get these horrible hot rushes throughout my body a few times a day, to the point where I am sweating and red in the face. Then it goes away and I am cold again. I am thinking this is menopause. I am feeling really old, like an old mommy, and don't know how to feel and look younger. Well, that's another post, probably.
