Att all you menopausal ladies
I have a question for the ladies of a certain age :D
Do you find any correlation between raging hot flashes (with copious sweating) and lupus tiredness, flares, over work etc etc???
I seem to be be having more and more severe hot flashes especially when I'm over due for a nap or I've done something physical like changing bed linens or gardening ..things like that.
Before this whole Lupus issue I'd have the occasional hot flash but no sweating and just the normal swoosh hotness and then it'd be gone.
Just wondering if this is the normal menopause nonsense or a Lupus issue.
Att all you menopausal women
I had a hysterectomy 2001 which triggered my lupus. I refused HRT but almost 6 years on I have dreadful sweats particularly at night, I am wet through, I live with a fan beside me. I am well over the menopause now but my sweats are no better. I have had a high ESR for 5 years and I am sure its the lupus that causes the sweats in my case.

Yes I have one yearly, have some osteopaenia but its holding ok. I am on steroids continuously, thyroxine and no oestrogen so in high risk group.
I take didronol and calcichew.
Thanks for reply
