Hot flashes and hot temper
Here's my story... I'm 56. When I was 32 I began having horrible migraines which went on until the age of 48 and that is when I entered menopause. I remember back then the hot flashes and sleepless nights.
Backing up... I had a hysterectomy when I was 39 but the surgeon left my ovaries.
I began wearing a low dose hormone patch in my late 40's and I was 80% migraine free. I have worn the patch from about 1999-07. I stopped because of what the statistics say about taking HRT for more than 7 years.
Needless to say... I am miserable. So, I began wearing the patch again but I was still having the flashes. Not as intense but still bad. So now, I've taken the patch off and am trying Progesterone cream. I don't know if this will help or not or if I should even be doing it? Help.
