Q.

Why do I get a hot flush when I need to urinate instead of the usual urge to pee?

I am a 54 yr old menopausal female and have recently found that the usual urge to urinate has been replaced by a hot flush, is this normal in women of my age and stage of life? Could this be the start of an infection?

Hot flushes are, of course common at your age and they can be precipitated by various things - heat , stress, etc. I guess they could be precipitated by wanting to pass urine. An infection is usually associated with burning and frequent urination.
