I have heard that green tea helps (can't remember where I heard it).
I have hot flashes about every 20 minutes, lasting anywhere from 30 seconds to 5 minutes. Sometimes, they are so bad, I worry that I should be keeping a spare shirt at work. I haven't slept through the night in 2 years.
I am a breast cancer survivor, and it is likely that the medication I take for that is aggravating my hot flashes. I can't take hormones, and the information on the soys and natural estrogens for breast cancer survivors has been so conflicting and confusing.
So, I just sweat it out in silence, hoping that it's not forever.
On a different note, has anyone noticed that they have more difficulty concentrating and remembering things? I had a photographic memory, and now have the CRS Syndrome (Can't Remember S*&!).
