Menopause and the years surrounding it are filled with hormonal ups and downs. These fluctuations can damage your body temperature. Women in menopause often suffer from daytime tides of heat and night sweats. They are usually accompanied by other symptoms, such as irregular cycles, dry skin and capriciousness. The average age at which women reach menopause is 51 years, but you may start to notice signs such as night sweats a few years earlier. Some women even notice symptoms at 30 years old. Menopause is a normal part of a woman’s life so there is no need to treat her, but your doctor can offer treatment to make you feel more comfortable.
When you feel anxious or stressed during the day, you can sweat. Chronic anxiety can cause the same thing at night. Managing the symptoms of anxiety can help alleviate this annoying side effect. Talking to a counsellor makes it easier for many people to feel anxious. Many therapists practice cognitive-behavioural therapy that teaches you how to correct the way you think. You learn to recognize and redirect worrying thoughts. If one therapy isn’t enough, mental health professionals sometimes prescribe prescription drugs, such as antidepressants, for their patients.
