Hot Flashes or NightSweats?

Postby Zero » Tue Nov 04, 2003 3:10 am

I don't have as many hotflashes as I used to (partly because of losing weight), but even in the winter I have to have a fan on me all night--WITH a cozy blanket.....weird, huh?

Is there a real difference

Why is one called a hot flash and the other a night sweat? Is it because a "day sweat" wouldn't sound right? I sweat whenever the "hotness" hits, day or night.

Is there a "physiological" difference in them?
