Menopause

Getting Cold During Perimenopause

09/19/2011

Question:

Could I address the question to Cynthia Evans. I`d like to know more about cold flushes. Is it possible to get cold flushes in peri-menopause??? How common is it to get cold during peri-menopause??? What can I do about cold flushes. I feel that no matter how high I put the heater on and no matter how many clothes I put on I still get cold. What can I do about it???? I feel afraid about it.

Thanks

Answer:

Thank you for visiting NetWellness. That is not typical of menopause, but can occur with thyroid disease. I would recommend you discuss this issue with your doctor.
