Hot Flashes of Death

Holy crap. That's all I can say. I thought (a bit smugly I might add) that I had gotten through the worst of menopause. Got the sleep thing adjusted. Hadn't had a hot flash in months.

Then I got my period. And it's been horrible all over again. The emotional roller coaster. The random exhaustion. AND THE HOT FLASHES OF DEATH.

I'm often just sitting there, minding my own business, when WHAM. About half the time triggered by stress (very minor stress, which is ANNOYING.) And the other half out of the blue.

Has this happened to anyone else? How did you combat it? I'm going crazy. Sweaty eyes is just not a good look for me.
