Kouekoors / night sweats
Ek is in menopause, gebruik HRT (Kliogest), maar ipv gewone night sweats, kry ek kouekoors. Ek het gewoonlik 1 of 2 warm sweaters langs my op die bed wat ek dadelik moet aantrek en onder 'n winter laken en duvet inklim. My vingers word wit tot by die eerste lid en ek haal vinnig asem (amper soos 'n panic attack). As ek ophou ruk is ek papnat gesweet, maar sodra ek onder die komberse uitklim om bv toilet toe te gaan, begin ek weer ruk. Ek gaan gewoonlik bed toe met 'n langmou sweater aan al is dit hoe warm.

This sounds unusual for the menopause, particularly as you are on HRT. I would suggest that you see your GP for a check-up.
