I am waving the white flag! How do those of you with hot flashes handle them? I had them the first time I went through menopause (when I was 21-very early menopause). Recently I went off my HRT that I had been on for almost 30 years. The hot flashes are awful! I must get about 15 of them every evening. For the most part they don't seem to hit until after 5:00 but when they do-omg!! Of course, then when they pass I am freezing! I cannot go back on HRT. Anyone have any advice on how to handle the hot flashes?
