Hot Flashes - Austin, TX

Hot Flashes - Austin, TX

Hot flashes, sometimes referred to as hot flushes, are an uncomfortable, irritating condition to deal with. They can interfere with your life and make ordinary situations frustrating. If you’re dealing with hot flashes and want help, call or reach us online.

Symptoms of Hot Flashes

Hot flashes are usually quick and often debilitating. The experience of a hot flash can vary from person to person, but generally some symptoms of a hot flash include:

  • Redness in face
  • Redness in neck
  • Increase in temperature
  • Perspiration
  • Dizziness
  • Rapid heartbeat

After the hot flash is over, many will experience a feeling of extreme cold, or chills. A hot flash can last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, with time needed for recovery after.

Causes of Hot Flashes

Though commonly associated with menopause and perimenopause, there are many causes of hot flashes and they can even occur in men. Hot flashes are typically associated with hormones, so low estrogen may be a culprit. Breast cancer can also cause hot flashes.

In addition to hormonal issues, hot flashes can be caused or made worse by a number of triggers:

  • Alcohol
  • Caffeine
  • Diet pills
  • Certain foods
  • High temperatures
  • Smoking
  • Saunas
  • Certain clothes

Avoiding or reducing these triggers can help mitigate your hot flashes and bring you closer to finding the root cause.

Treatments for Hot Flashes

If you’re seeking hot flash treatment, it’s best to contact one of our doctors and set up a consultation. There are many options for treating hot flashes, including simple lifestyle changes. In addition to avoiding the aforementioned triggers, increasing exercise, losing weight and changing your diet can help cut down on hot flashes.

A doctor may also recommend:

  • Medication
  • Vitamins and supplements
  • Holistic medicine
  • Birth control
  • Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

Hormone replacement has emerged as a cutting-edge way to treat hot flashes. This is particularly true of Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, or BHRT. BHRT uses natural hormones to right your body’s levels of estrogen and other key hormonal issues.

If you’re curious about using BHRT to treat hot flashes, don’t hesitate to contact us online for a consultation.

Fight Hot Flashes

Whether through lifestyle changes, medication or hormone replacement therapy, hot flashes are a debilitating issue worth treating. Hot flashes can be confusing to deal with on your own, so it’s best to contact a doctor. Call or reach us online to start right away.
