My experiences with menopause started when I turned 43, While I was working at the shirt factory I could feel those hot flashes creeping up my back and down my arms and I would ask my boss to please turn the fan on me. I took hormone pills until I turned 55 my Dr. took me off of them because they said they caused cancer and heart problems. I do have heart problems, as well as a few other health problems. I still have hot flashes especially at night. I'll be freezing one minute and the next minute I'll be burning up. I drink a lot of ice water it helps.
