Hot flashes

Iv been getting ridiculously hot as well as having hot flashes around my head neck chest and back. It’s almost like my skin is burning, it feels like sun burn.

Iv had tonnes of blood tests back and all normal (liver count slightly high but usually is) the Dr just said everything’s normal. My ms nurse said ‘sometimes things happen to your body and we just don’t know what it is”.

I thought you could get burning experience with MS but this is like over heating even when I’m even cold. The only thing I seem to read is that getting hot or cold can make your symptoms worse… I don’t have any ms symtoms currently at all. Any got any ideas!?

I’ve had this for 10 years or more and recently realised i only get an “attack” if I’ve not had enough sleep the night before and find returning to bed even just to rest for 15 minutes helps. My face goes bright red like sunburn, and like you it only effects my face, head, shoulders and across my chest. Unfortunately being a woman of a certain age it too easy to dismiss it. Sorry I can’t give you an answer to our problem.

Same here. I get random hot flashes and have to strip off all of a sudden to cool down. Haven’t found anything to help tho

It’s agony. My ms is basically non existent I have no new lesions but if it is is ms I would kinda be relieved. Feels like I’m going to explode!!

I hope Mrs Puss-in-boots it’s never suddenly happended while you were on the bus.

i take Tecfidera. I think it can cause hot flushes, well that’s what I’m putting mine down to. It does kick off innfrequently. I think if I’m under stress it can be exacerbated.
