I'm not sure exactly if it's menopause symptoms, or rather hormonal imbalance, but I did a test last year and it said everything was fine, I have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism in the past and am pushing for a new test this friday (my last years test said I was ok) So I am not presently on any medication.
But basically I suffer a lot from overheating, but mainly in the head area, the back of my head starts to sweat and my whole head feels so so hot that it's super irritating and frustrating. I also get a feeling of 'burning' on my tongue, like I just want to stick my tongue in cold water and leave it there, not sure if burning is the best explanation, it doesn't hurt, but it's just super hot as if it's overheating.
When I told my doctors (a few different ones) about 'hot-head' and 'hot-tongue' they just look at me like I'm bizarre, and tell me I'm too young for menopause. Which makes me feel like it's all in my head (well it is but you know what I mean here) and that what I am experiencing does not really exist.
But when it happens, it's really frustrating, red cheeks, sweats etc etc. I have tried to figure out if food has any effect, etc, but have not found a common trigger, I just feel like it's hormonal imbalance of some sort.
I just don't know how to explain it to get the right answers, would love to be able to stop this from happening....does this happen to anyone else?
