I'm 62 and over menopause. Why does my entire body turn

Customer Question
I'm 62 and over...

I'm 62 and over menopause. Why does my entire body turn bright red, with nausea and weakness for about 10-15 minutes several times a day. I have to put my head down or I will fall down.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?

Atleast 6 months now. The only thing that makes it better is laying down and going to sleep. Anything else doesn't help. Nothing but sleep or laying down make it better which makes it extremely hard to work 90 minutes from home everyday.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
