Cause of flashes, night sweats, waking up drenched

I had a total hysterectomy 30 years ago at age 40. I am also engaged with Latinos at least once per week through my church. I’m wondering about a long-term disease about coughing.

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

I don't understand the Latino connection with your hot flashes.

Hot flashes are often hormonal in nature, despite your hysterectomy being 30 years ago. They can also be caused by medications - are you on any?

Do you also have a cough?

Your post isn't very clear - call your doctor for a check up for these hot flashes; some bloodwork can be done to see where you stand.
