Dear JA customer ,

sorry to hear about your problem,

i am online today and will be happy to assist you in your problem.

one possibility is that your symptoms (considering your age and gender) can be due to postmenopausal estrogen deficiency, this is called post menopausal hot flashes.

or this can be due to thyroid hormone problems and number of other diseases can cause this.

what i suggest is following.

go to your primary care physician, and get

cbc

LH:FSH ratio

TSH

Dexa scan

if you have no other risk factors and your condition does come out to be due to estrogen deficiency, you will probably need hormonal replacement therapy.

i hope this helps. if you have any more questions, please feel free to ask.
