Symptom: Hot Flashes

    A hot flash is a feeling of warmth spreading throughout the body that is often most pronounced in the head and neck areas. Hot flashes are typically brief (lasting from about 30 seconds to a few minutes) and are sometimes associated with redness of the skin (flushing) and/or perspiration. Hot flashes are a common symptom of the menopausal transition in women, but not all women approaching menopause will have hot flashes. About majority of women in the menopausal transition experience hot flashes. Hot flashes can also occur as a result of certain uncommon medical conditions.
