What happens to my body when I have hot flashes?

During a hot flash, you feel a sudden rush of heat move from your chest to your head. The skin may turn red, and you the woman may sweat. It affects the part of your brain that regulates your body temperature. Researchers don't know exactly what's the reason for hot flashes. It could be a drop in estrogen or change in another hormone. Hot flashes are sometimes brought on by things like hot weather, eating hot or spicy foods, or drinking alcohol or caffeine. Try to avoid these things if you find they trigger the hot flashes.
