I'm 52, and my doctor just took me off birth control pills. I "think" I may be having hot flashes, however, I start feeling '"tingling" in my chest, not chest pains, more similar to when your foot falls asleep and starts coming around. More like my skin is super sensitive. The tingling starts in my chest/breasts and then moves down my arms then my legs. After all that stops (about a minute), then it seems I get hot. Is the tingling normal? Has anyone else ever had this? Any suggestions to make it stop or reduce the sensitivity? Thanks.View Thread
Thank you Dr. Minkin & Detoxx. Its been driving me crazy, and I didn't know if it was just me or something that's somewhat common. Also, since it started in my chest, didn't know if it was a blocked artery or a weird menopause symptom. I'll start with my GYN. Thanks again. Appreciate you taking the time.View Thread
