Hot Flashes Definition and Symptoms
Hot flashes are a symptom of menopause that cause a sudden feeling of warmth, typically intense, over the face, neck, and chest. These flashes are caused by hormone imbalances that occur during menopause. Hot flashes can occur in people who are not going through menopause but are not common. Symptoms include a sudden feeling of warmth, flushed blotchy skin, rapid heartbeat, sweating, and feeling chilled as the hot flash subsides.
