Recovering from flu. Feeling hot. Am I having hot flashes?


I'm getting over a really bad cold (that had fever and cough). Yesterday was my best "on the road to recovery" day--no fever. Today--for the last hour--I feel hot all over, even my eyes. I'm 60 and entered menopause at 52. I don't usually have hot flashes ("power surges") these days.

Am I having a hot flash or recurrence of the bad cold I thought I was getting over?

Thank you

Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

history of bad cold with fever and cough and feeling hot all over, even in eyes suggest viral fever. It is not any post menopausal symptom, take Tab. Paracetamol 650 mg with plenty of fluids. Consult your doctor for further management.
Hope I answered your question. Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries.
Wish you good health. Take care.
