Why not get in for a complete physical? In cultures that don't expect menopausal problems they don't have them. Could be your thyroid or some other imbalance. I figure I must be perimenopausal at 50 + and thought I might be having hot flushes a while back, then I realized it was over 100 degrees and I was just as hot as everybody else. The getting chilled is kind of different but winter is coming. Just get a complete work up and put your mind at ease. Raspberry leaf tea is very good for women, so is evening primrose - check out some natural stuff too.
