Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

It can be due to parasthesia skin which is due to dysfunctioning of neurons or due to menopause. Parasthesia can be due to diabetes, hypothyroidism, peripheral vascular disease, malnutrition.

Get your blood sugar and thyroid hormones levels evaluated. You can take some vit B12 for some days and see if the symptoms improve. If the symptoms persist then get the above mentioned possibilities ruled out from a neurologist. Also then you should consult a gynecologist and get premenopause ruled out as it often causes feeling of warmth and hot flashes.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.
