This website answered my questions about the ongoing heat

Customer Question

http://www.34-menopause-symptoms.com/hot-flashes/articles/hot-flashes-after-age-60.html This website answered my questions about the ongoing heat and perspiration plus I was recently advised anxiety creates stress, stress activates asthma. The picture all falls together. My Dr. has not said much because I am an epileptic and have to be very careful of medications. Thank you, Deborah

what medical questions do you have for me?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I guess just confirmation you can actually be this age and get so hot and perspire so badly people comment.
Also looking for ways to turn off the furnace and not just go to chills. It has been really bad but now it is making me very... bitchy and I don't like that person

yes, menopause can cause hot flashes and sweats, pretty severely in some patients.

there are medications like effexor or paxil which can help decrease hot flashes.

you should talk to your doctor about these options.
