From this study (4 days ago):
I am in menopause and no longer experience hot flashes. I have very low heat tolerance and often am feeling uncomfortably hot. I awake every night around 4:00 am and am drenched in sweat even tho I sleep under 2 fans in addition to AC. It takes some time to get cooled off enough to fall back to sleep. The mattress I sleep on is a TempuraPedic and I know this causes heat reflection. I have had this mattress for 7 years, tho, but have only been experiencing these heat episodes for approximately 1 year. Please share your opinion. I have a feeling my meds are combining to cause these heat attacks. Thank you.
