Surgical Menopause

OMG! I'm starting to get hot flashes! Now, the hot flashes I tolerate. I'm having a tough time with the chills I'm also experiencing. No one ever seems to talk about this symptom. I was talking to a good friend who has been going through menopause naturally. I asked her about the chills. She said she has them. In all the time she's been complaining about going through menopause, she never mentioned the chills.

After trying all sorts of natural and herbal remedies, she finally decided to go to the doctor and get a prescription for hormones. She had it bad--night sweats, insomnia, and the hot flashes.

So far, I think I'm going to ride it out and discuss it with my doctor during my next follow up. I really feel she jinxed me. During my appointment on Tuesday she asked me if I was getting hot flashes. I told her no. The very next day they started.
