@Ahki56, I was having the so called hotflashes 5yrs before my hhysterectomy and I was only 35 at the time. I was forced to quit delivering mail because of frequent blackouts cause I would get so hot and sweaty all year round and I live in Kansas City! I haven't taken opiads in 2ys and started taking black kosh, b-12 and calcium d still nothin works! I believe our thyroid and brains are miscommunicating because of FM.View Thread
I'm going through the motions with my doctors about the MS but definately have FM...I hate the overwhelming heat that pounces down on me with a prickling sensation then sweat every where! Oh and irritability that comes with it is off the charts.View Thread
Yes! It's so bad that I decided to give up contact with the outside world and family! Aug. 8th I was at my fiance's family gathering and I blacked out because I was so hot. I was too embarassed to ask for help and tried to handle it on my own, so my intentions were to go to the bathroom to splash water on my face but did'nt make it, so the next thing I knew people were standing all over me calling my name!!!!
I take vitamin B-12 and it doesn't help at all! If you can try not to drive anywhere alone cause it is really dangerous...View Thread
