Dear JB, Sadly it can be normal. Best to get checked out by an MD, though, blood pressure, hormone status, etc. If it is just hot flashes (and many of us have had them that bad - I feel for you), the good news is that it doesn't last forever. Good luck and stay cool. (Sorry for the late answer - never was notified by Wellsphere of your post. If you need more help or have more questions, visit Menopause Goddess Blog and click contact us.
