During menopause, women may have hot flashes and sweating, make it hard to fall asleep. You can try to change some living habits to improve the conditions:
  • Keep your bedroom cool
  • Wear loose pajamas with clothing made from cotton
  • Avoid having spicy foods before bed time
  • Keep a regular daily sleep routine
  • Exercise regularly
  • Avoid stimulant activites before bed time
  • Avoid naps during the daytime

Well I've tried all these I wonder if anyone else keeps a.c. on low and still sweat enough to dampen your clothes throw the sheet off and immediately start to freeze goosebumps and am either I'm extremely hot or freezing cold
When my mother had her menopause she sweat a lot, like she's in the middle of something when everything is okay and next minute she gets sweaty. That was 10 years ago, my dad was working in Hongkong. The wife of one of my dad's peers took my mom to a local doctor, he gave my mother herbal medicine that looks quite complicated. I don't know what's in that yellow paper bag but I do remember he said American Ginseng and astragalus are good for condition like this. My mom had the herb medicine for two months, she had great relief. That medicine smelled great but tasted super bitter, very hard to swallow.
Diet with more soybean products, it helps. Not a magic, but helps.
This is certainly a manifestation of menopause. Estrogen therapy is the most effective treatment option for relieving menopausal hot flashes.
I have been using evening primrose  capsules 1000 mg 1 to 2 times a day for hot flashes, has helped me a great deal
