In brief: Yes
Hot flashes are the most common symptom of menopause.
If your symptoms are extreme, speak with your doc about hormone replacment to help you through this period. Women who are healthy and just entering menopause are good candidates for hrt. Your doc can also check to make sure there are no other causes of hot flashes at this time.
