So it seems whenever stress hits me hard hot flashes hit hard too. It started last Oct when driving behind the ambulance to the hospital. Things settled and my body got more normal. When I moved everything stopped again and other stressors hit and the hot flashes are back. Cold then hot .....it gets tiring and I'd love some natural ideas. HRT doesn't seem like a great choice for me yet according to docs because I have had terrible reactions to BC. What do people like for relief of this. I will say I don't have terrible ones ..they are pretty brief but becoming more frequent.
