Does exercise bring on hot flashes?


Question from PainterSue: I am going through premature menopause from the chemo. Now, it seems like exercise brings on hot flashes! Is there anything I can do?
Answers - Melinda Irwin It could be that if you're new to exercising that one of the adaptations to exercise is to sweat sooner, which is a good thing because then you're dissipating the heat from around your heart to your skin. So the sweating that you have because of exercising may make you think you're having a hot flash.
