Does Anyone Have Hot Flashes With No Fever

Does Anyone Have Hot Flashes With No Fever

I have suddenly started having hot flashes, sweats, then freezing cold. Then the whole process starts over it is bad enough I take my temp but there is no fever. I am not on any RA meds as yet. And I have not been on any hormone therapy. Have already gone completely through menopause and don't have flashes from that anymore. I go and see the Rheumy on Sept 21. Does anyone else have this issue. Thanks in advance for your answers.

Hot Flashes

Hot Flashes

Does anyone else have trouble with hot flashes due to your RA or your treatment? I take hormones following a full hysterectomy a few years ago, so I don't think it's that. I get terrible hot flashes many times a day, especially from my chest upward. I just pour sweat, which is torture in this Alabama heat and humidity. What can be done to help alleviate them?

I also have awful hot flashes, any time of day or night. I dont know if it's the meds or because of menopause. Whatever it is it's horrible.

Hot Flashes

Hot Flashes

I have always had hot flashes since I started meds 20 years ago due to RA.
They were always while I slept.
3 weeks ago I had a major hysterectomy and slowly recovering. Starting last week I am constantly having them all day and night, no sleep due to the pain of healing but mostly because of hot flashes.
Im looking for natural help, not because im anti meds but because I have had issues with blood clots and of course lacking an immune system my surgeon doesnt recommend meds due to menopause.

Did Anyone Have RA Flare Constantly After Starting Methotrexate?

Did Anyone Have RA Flare Constantly After Starting Methotrexate?

I started MTX 2.5 weeks ago and besides the exhaustion and nausea the 24 hours after taking it, I’ve been fine with no side effects. I have been having more flares. A lot more swelling, pain and that flushed feeling of a low grade fever. Anyone else have worsening of RA symptoms after starting MTX?
