If you are one of those women who have menopause with the usual symptoms, the most likely and easiest of them will be hot flashes.
Tides, apparently, are associated with a drop in estrogen levels, as a result of which the biochemistry of the brain processes changes, malfunctions in the regulation of the temperature regime occur. A malfunction in the temperature regulator of our body in a small gland located in the center of the brain is similar to a malfunction in the home thermoregulator. The temperature regulator mistakenly determines that you are cold, and turns on the heating. Signals are sent to the blood vessels in the skin, causing them to contract, which leads to an increase in temperature, and you feel warm. But since it wasn’t really cold for you, your body hastily expands its vessels to cool itself. This causes a rush of blood to the upper body and the face you feel it like a hot wave and profuse sweating.
How strong are the tides? Many women feel slight heat, accompanied by a few drops of sweat. For others, tides can be extremely strong.
Stewardess Clarice Harrell, 46, describes her tides as "a volcano formed on my head." As for sweat, she says, “I woke up wet to the string two to three times a night. No wonder that the next day I was irritable. ”
