    • Gina...being that I’ve only had two hot flashes that I know of...I really do not know what helps. I’m sure there are others on here that will be able to answer that.  Just know you might not get answers until tonight or tomorrow being that so many are enjoying their Memorial Day today.

    • 5 Ways to Keep Your Cool When Hot Flashes Strike  

      Keeping a diary of when and where you get hot flashes can help you figure out which specific foods, activities, and situations to avoid.  

      Here’s what you can do to manage hot flashes when they do strike:  

      Wear lightweight, absorbent cotton clothing (and pajamas at night).
      Grab a cold drink when you first start to overheat.
      Turn on a fan or go into a cool room.
      Try to relax with meditation or deep breathing exercises if you feel anxious or nervous.
      Dress in layers of clothing so that you can take off items as you start to feel warm.
      For many women, hot flashes are an inevitable part of menopause. But with a little preparation, you can stay comfortable and keep hot flashes under control.
