Hello, I'm new to this forum and live in Toronto, Canada.
I've had hot flashes for over 22 years since I had a complete hysterectomy due to fibroids and endometriosis. Actually, to be fair, the hot flashes started about one year after my surgery. I've tried hundreds of over the counter meds that claim to calm down the symptoms of hot flashes, however, to no avail. I've also taken prescription meds to help with hot flashes, only to add weight gain to my problem. Even though I took the prescription meds religiously (risking the weight gain), nothing is working and actually, it's getting worse and these hot flashes last for many, many hours at a time whereby it controls where and when I can go out. I also take meds for fibromyalgia, gout, osteoarthritis, and opioids for spinal pain.
I'm just wondering if anybody else out there has these hot flashes that are out of control.
