Back pain, shoulder damage after accident. Get hot flashes. Is it due to accident?

I was hit by a car in Sept 2012- Not a major accident- but I have been out of work since with back pain and shoulder damage. I am post menopausal and have noticed a recurrence of hot flashes. Very severe- I am always hot- and get flashes easily. Could this be caused by the accident. I am under Doctor care- but never made a connection between the 2.

Thanks for asking.

I do not think so there is any correlation between the hot flushes and the accident.

Most of the times the hot flushes is due to the estrogen deficiency, mainly in the postmenopausal woman.

Get your hormonal levels checked.

Thanks for writing to Healthcare magic,

I have studied your case,
Hot flushes may not be related to accident.
This is due to hormone imbalance in post menopausal period.
You may opt for hormone replacement therapy knowing adverse reactions of those medicines.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
