I hate to revisit an old disturbing medical issue but…..I continue or have resumed having night sweats and/or afternoon hot flashes also.
In medical terms the differential diagnosis would be something like:
menopause v. alcohol v. TB v. some scary leukemia
I have at times felt like I am~~ a.) melting….b.) going crazy….c.) having a nervous breakdown….d.) all of the above.
not a good place to be when A.) your adult son(s) are struggling in a shitty economy B.) you are a very experienced bedside but academically challenged nurse pursuing a masters degree C.) degree is required for a desired promotion.
most nights I just kind of toss and turn….blankets on~blankets off
the other night I had a distinct jolt awake at 3am…no reason just like someone kicked me awake.
open to suggestions…
