Internal Body Thermostat Not Working? in Sclero Forums (MAIN) Posted March 20, 2016 Any thoughts on this? I am having new and more intense hot flashes. I am confused, thought menopause had already happened and I was done, no menstruation for many years and hot flashes back then too. I had terrible night sweats from 2000-2008 til I was diagnosed, the medication helps a lot; I still sweat at night, thankfully not as much (less chills after soaking pillow and pj's). My thyroid went hyper in late 2011, now in remission according to bloodwork. My doctor called it Mild Graves Disease. LOL it did not feel mild to me! I had 3 week cycles for decades, yes, 3 weeks, not 4 weeks. Then, IUD placed, unknowingly on top of a large uterine polyp. At that time I was so sick from Sclero, not diagnosed, I complained but was not heard and not my normal vocal self kind of patient, constant bleeding and infections for a couple years until IUD removed, large polyp removed (benign), then, a few sparse periods. Conceived miracle baby during that time, gave birth at age 40.5 then from sporadic to no menstruation again in a year. Almost 4 years later after that I am having more intense hot flashes. My annual ob/gyn check ups are normal. How in the world am I getting so HOT sometimes now? Possible my defunct ovaries finally gave up though menstruation stopped several years ago?
