Does anyone else ever get hot flashes when they get overwhelmed or anxious? How do you cope with it? I’ve been trying not to take xanax but I live in the south and it’s only getting hotter and hotter and it’s more and more difficult to deal with. It makes me feel sick to my stomach and keeps me in the house when I really want to live my life. I always try to go to the beach every year but this year seems out of the question with how my anxiety and panic attacks have progressed over the past year.
