Are you experiencing hot flushes?

Try to determine what is causing you to experience hot flushes, or flashes. Could it perhaps be triggered by stress, alcohol or maybe caffeine? If you are unsure, try making a note of when you experience it, what you ate or drank, and any other condition or circumstances that may induce it.

Try to keep calm and breathe deeply. Avoid stressing yourself further. Remember to dress comfortably and to keep yourself cool.
