Hot flashes, also known as hot flushes, are sudden sensations of heat that typically occur in the face, neck, and chest and may be accompanied by sweating, flushing of the skin, and a rapid heartbeat. Hot flashes are a common symptom experienced by many women, especially during menopause, but they can also occur in men and may be associated with certain medical conditions or medications.
Hot flashes can vary in frequency, duration, and intensity among individuals. Some women may experience occasional mild hot flashes, while others may have frequent and severe episodes that disrupt daily activities and sleep. In addition to sensations of heat and sweating, hot flashes may be accompanied by symptoms such as chills, palpitations, anxiety, and mood changes.
Menopause: Hot flashes are most commonly associated with menopause, which is the natural cessation of menstruation marking the end of a woman’s reproductive years. Hot flashes are thought to result from hormonal changes, particularly fluctuations in estrogen levels, which can affect the body’s temperature regulation mechanisms.
