For the last few weeks I keep getting really hot all the time, I feel like I am going to pass out, get all clammy and absolutely boiling. It doesn't seem to happen at any particular time, sometimes I am rushing around, sometimes I am driving or just sat down. The only thing I can compare it to is what my mum described when she went through the menopause but I am only just 30 so would't expect it to be that. I have been taking sertraline (antidepressant) for 7 weeks could it be a side effect? I have also been told I have cysts on my ovaries (possibly polycystic ovaries) could it be related? I know the weather is getting warmer but I don't think it is just the weather, it was pouring with rain here yesterday and I went for a walk in a t-shirt because I couldn't bear to wear a coat.
