Our expert says:
True hot flushes as one would expect in peri and postmenopausal women related to fluctuating hormone levels. However, there may be other factors, which may simulate hot flushes such as thyroid disorder as well as infections, and these need to be ruled out. Night sweats may sometimes be the earliest signs of tuberculosis’s (TB) or other chronic infections and therefore I would recommend a full hormone profile be done to resolve this issue.
