Hi Polly
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

You probably have an infection of genitals.If you are approaching menopause , this could be dryness too.I advise you to visit your Gynecologist and get examined to detect the exact cause of infection.Proper antibiotics or topical antifungal cream can treat your infection.If it is due to menopause , its good for you to start hormone replacement therapy.If this a very longstanding problem you definitely need Gynecologist's evaluation.

Take care.

I am 74 years old and have experienced hot flushes since menopause (at age 54). I experience moderate to high blood pressure and most medications for this make my symptoms worse. I have heart palpitations during these uncomfortable symptoms, experience fatigue and have night sweats which wake me up. I have Sjoegren's Syndrome with Sicca, and Peripehral neuropathy and most other aging symptoms. I don't have dementia, thankfully, but I am curious as to whether hot flushes are impacting on my blood pressure and contributing to my anxieties or could it be caused by my thyroid? My tests show a normal reading for my thyroid. I also had cancer of the uterus, grade 1, and had everything removed nine years ago and have remained cancer free to date. I hope you can help me find a way to improve the situation as I don't have any blocked arteries or heart problems so it is a mystery to me. I am worried about the impact it may eventually have on my heart. Sincerely yours,
