Temp is 96.8-97.5 during major hot flash. Post surgical menopause. Possible causes?

Normal

Hot_flashes
The hot flash sensation is caused by dilation of the blood vessels close to the skin. This releases heat from your body surface making your core slightly cooler. That is why many women feel cold a few minutes after the hot flash is over.

Dr. Lydia Collins answered:

What would cause hot flash like symptoms , body feels extremely warm, and face becomes red when you are post menopause?

Menopausal hot flash

Menopause
Menopausal hot flashes cause the body to keep extremely warm with a facial redness rising from the neck. It lasts about 3 minutes before settling down. Removing clothes layers, sipping cold water and paced-breathing are all useful management options. There are several medications that can be used as well if they become intolerable.

Can you have a hot flash for anything other than menopause?

Sure.

Hot_flashes
A hot flash could be just a hot flash. Or, it could be from stress or anxiety. Thyroid problems sometimes present with intolerance to hot or cold. Other medical disorders can present with hot flashes. And, a hormone imbalance, even if it is not menopause, could also give you hot flashes. If it is only occasional, it's probably no big deal. If they are frequent, or causing problems, see your Dr.

Why scared?

Endometriosis
If you are having periods then you are not in menopause. Endometriosis is not related to early menopause. You will need to see your doctor to discuss the variety of other things that can cause hot flashes.

Your skin temperature changes from blood vessels in the surface of the skin dilating and pushing more warm blood to the surface. Your core body temperature does not increase like a fever

Dr. Jane Van Dis answered:

Why do some women have hot flash and some don't have after menopause?

Unfair!

Hot_flashes
You point to the fact that some women have different hormonal and physiological environments during menopause. It's really not fair, right? I definitely have had patients who say they barely noticed the menopause transition, and others who curse the changes. Smoking, obesity and lack of exercise can all exacerbate hot flashes. Thus a healthy diet, exercise and good habits may lessen.
