In brief: Hot flashes

By sudden feelings of heat i assume you are experiencing something like hot flashes, which are a classic sign of menopause, which is common in women 62 and older (often usually starts before this age).
The symptom is readily treatable with estrogen hormones (most common) and a few other atternatives. Certain medications could also cause similar symptoms.
