Coping with Menopause

Ladies, just wanted to share my experiences with battling menopause in hope that it will help and encourage you. I didn't go into menopause until I was 55. Am now 57. I too have the weird adrenaline rushes and being slightly Ocd this causes me health concerns and I start body cking. I have found when I do this l am having a terrific hot flash. Mine also began when I took a round of antibiotics for a bladder infection. I think other things were in play with the hormone levels. I found that sugar causes this and I already don't do caffeine. Also tried hrt but it didn't help me that much. Dr just upped my Zoloft and said it would help my anxiety, which I always had but now is magnified. This was the nurse at my gyno office that told me about the Zoloft helping. Also look into fermented foods. I crave sugar. The thing that really helps is watching the sugar I take it and caffeine will cause hot flashes.
