So, I have been dealing with something for a few years, but I don’t actually know what it is. I can be sitting down doing nothing, but I all of a sudden start to feel really flush and hot. It’s a feeling of sudden heat mixed with a chill that runs from my head to my feet for about 10 seconds, and then goes away. Once I get one, it will come back every few moments and then vanish for a few hours. It’s a very weird sensation. My mom suffers from chronic hot flashes, so I thought that may be it. I get a lot of my health conditions from her side of the family, so I wouldn’t be surprised. But she has gone through menopause already, so hot flashes are normal. I’m only 19 and haven’t experienced menopause yet, but I’ve been having these weird flush feelings since I hit puberty at 12. Some days are worse than others while some are better. But there’s never a week that goes by without me having at least two feelings like this. I have IBS-C and sciatica, so maybe it’s a part of one of those? Does anyone else experience a similar sensation? If so, do you have any idea of what it could be? It’s very hard to explain because I can’t fully put into words what it feels like.

      I have POTS and I get that if I’m standing for too long in anything above 70 degrees. My body doesn’t regulate its own temperature well. That’s all I can really think of. I did have a friend who went through early menopause but that was because of a really intense cancer treatment.

      Hm... are you always relaxed when it happens?

        @Lucas.exe Yes! I can’t think of any times that I’ve been active and it’s happened. It’s always when I’m sitting down and getting ready for bed/trying to relax.

          @Mafuyu a lot of people get hotter when they sleep bc of your brain sending blood places it needs to when your sleeping. Kinda the same reason why men get erections while sleeping. I know when I'm tired sometimes my brain just shuts off and I get dizzy for a few seconds then it turns back on.

          @Mafuyu its might be because your brain thinks youre sleeping. Do you sweat in your sleep often?
