For the past couple of years, my husband has been going through menopause; While I sympathize with his multiple symptoms, the sizzling flashes and night sweats are the biggest concerns! She randomly gets severely overheated.
His face flushes and he starts to sweat.
She also seems to run at a higher temperature now. Where he once always complained of feeling frosty and kept turning up the thermostat, the opposite is now true. The two of us used to pay important heating bills and he never wanted to run the air conditioner system! Now, she’d rather not turn on the gas furnace. When it’s forty degrees outside and I can practically see my breath inside, he is not glad if the heating plan kicks on. I walk around in thick sweaters and often wear my sweater in the house! Even while all of us were in the summer, I need to bundle up. The two of us can never open the windows and let in some fresh air. The air conditioner system blasts non stop. She sets the thermostat so low that there’s never a relief from the influx of cold frosty air. Our biweekly electric bills are important. The wear and tear on the air conditioner system is tremendous. It’s especially bad at night. She cares about to lower the temperature setting by a couple of degrees. I pile on the blankets and still shiver. Even in the car, he turns the air conditioner system up to maximum speed. I periodically find an excuse to head outside just to hot up a bit. I am concerned for the symptoms of menopause to pass. It has been tough on both of us and directly impacts our budget.
