Hi, this is my first time on this site, although I have been a member of the SCS for many years now. Just wondered if any one knows of any research etc linking hot and cold sweats from menopausal symptoms with increasing the risk of a crisis. I ask this as I am experiencing severe change in body temperature from one second being boiling hot/extreme sweats and the other freezing cold which doesn't bode well for someone with sickle cell and I have had an increase in crisis and hospital admissions. I live in an area where there are no specialists in sickle cell. I mentioned this to the hematologist who looked at me bizarrely, and said they have never heard of this.
Or do you know of anyone else that has had this experience? How does one cope with this?
