Thank you for the query.
The symptom you have mentioned is know as hot flushes and it is a symptom of perimenopause. As your age is 47 now you will get to have these symptoms until your menopause.Nothing to worry other than this. If you have more problem with them consult your gynecologist so that she may give you some estrogen tablets to give some relief. Thank you.
