I had a total hysterectomy in 1997. I still have hot flashes. I can't stand the heat at all, tough living in a desert. I don't know if my anxiety was worse during "aunt flow", too long ago. But I do know that when I'm under a panic attack that my body heats up. It must have something to do with it. Whether it's hormones or not, not really sure. My advise would be to go see your PCP and Gyno and talk to them about the symptoms. Meanwhile, I wish I could send you one of my ice packs! LOL! I feel ya! Hope you find some answers, you're in my thoughts and prayers. Hang in.
