Are extreme hot flashes suggestive of menopausal symptoms?

Hi,

A few days ago my legs were freezing so cold I had to use extra blankets to stay warm. Now I get sensations that I'm hot mainly sweaty too. I'm 50 and menopausal but I asked my step dad and he says it could be a sign of diabetes. All day I turn on the fan and turn it off sometimes the next minute. I'm obese but never had diabetes or any health problems due to my weight. I am also been anemic too. Please help.

Hi welcome to HCM
I can understand your concern for your suffering due to your symptoms .
Yes dear , extreme hot flashes are suggestive of menopausal symptoms .
But diabetes can not be ruled out . You can't assure yourself of it's absence unless you get yourself tested . It is always better to take precaution .
I would like to suggest you to take a little more control over the consequences of your symptoms fatigue, weight gain, moodiness, and hot flashes by eating better and by exercise .
