I am a 54 year old woman. Full time worker with normal activity. My last period was 10/2007 and am on no perscription drugs. I am having hot flashes/sweats at least once an hour. The episodes last two to three minutes. My face turns abnormally red and my face, chest, underarms and back sweat. I have never been one who perspires much so this is unusally uncomfortable. It is greatly affecting my sleep.

Thank you in advance,
