Hi Anon,

Thank you for reaching out and sharing your question with EmpowHER! It sounds like what you are probably experiencing are hot flashes, which can be very frustrating and uncomfortable to deal with.

Have you recently started menopause and are feeling these hot flashes/internal heat as a symptom?

There are several things you can do to help improve your hot flashes. Drink more water and be sure to stay hydrated. This will help keep your overall body temperature cooler. Try eating less spicy foods to keep your body temperature down and breathe deeply. Here is a great resource with tips for staying cool when you experience hot flashes: http://www.empowher.com/hot-flashes/content/5-effortless-ways-cool-down-when-your-hot-flashes-just-wont-quit.

It is important to understand that hot flashes are a normal process for women. However, it doesn't mean you have to put up with suffering through them. A recent study came out saying that when women's hot flashes aren't treated, it can cost the economy millions of dollars. When women get hot flashes, a lot have more doctor's visits and some even drop out of work. Here is an article on the study: http://www.empowher.com/hot-flashes/content/when-hot-flashes-arent-treated-it-costs-economy-millions-dollars.

I would suggest also setting up and appointment with your doctor to talk about your hot flashes and treatments for them. Explain to your doctor the symptoms you are experiencing and have a discussion about finding a good treatment option.

I hope this helped! Please keep me updated and let me know if you have further questions.
