I'm glad I found this site. I realized I'm not the only one experiencing these types of scary hot flashes. My hot flashes are atypical when I compare them to other women I know. Mine start with a feeling of voidness in my chest, it almost feels like my heart has slowed down considerably and then a rush of heat radiating out from my chest up to my head and down to my feet it's also accompanied by palpitations and I also get a dizzy feeling. These flashes are so intense at times that I have sometimes thought I'm having a heart attack. Once they subside I'm usually very shaky/trembling and cold. These flashes have left me with anxiety to the point that I take antivan during some of these episodes to calm myself down. The other symptom I get that I haven't seen addressed here is that I usually have to go to the bathroom and have a bowel movement during or right after a hot flash. Has anyone else had this same symptom?

NOTES:

Hi there, I found another forum with some great help and similar symptoms as we all have. The link below has a posting from someone with similar symptoms as you have described. Thought you might want to check it out. Look to the bottom of the page for the post by "Happymom07".
Best of luck! Stacey
