Me .. who has been consistently frozen for decades is now - and has been - flushed for the past two weeks on/off. Face red and hot .. then normal cold and then back again. It's keeping me awake at night as I turn on my ceiling fan high, then shut it off. Hike up the covers, then throw them off.

I'm suspecting my bowels might be affected as well. And urine. It's like just before - that misery - before my period would start. Except, I had a hysterectomy in 2011.

If you have any experience or research you can point me to ... please feel free!

I remember a co-worker taking Evening Primrose Oil to avoid the side effects of menopause?
