My Hair is not soaked, but I get like a hot flash and turn fan on then 2-3 minutes later I am cold and shut fan off. I went through menopause 10 years ago at age 46. I drink tons of water. I am not sure what RA would have to do with it? I do have joint inflammation but have not gone to a Specialist as I have Bursitis and tendinitis, did not think RA. I am on 2 medications that I have been on for 20 years that do not have those side effects.I had a spell walking in the sun and had to sit down. My heart is fine, no fast paced heart beat or pain. I figure it is Menopause related. I am not sure taking Hormonal Therapy is a good idea. Anyone figure out what, why and how to get this under control?
