Does this sound like a hot flush?

I think I might have had my first ever hot flush.

I went to bed feeling slightly on edge, for no particular reason, and I lay awake for ages. Then I suddenly felt so hot I had to throw off my duvet, immediately followed by about 10 minutes of feeling cold, clammy and sweaty - but still too hot to get back under the covers.

Was that a hot flush? It's just that it didn't feel the way I expected them to feel - it was more of a cold flush after the few seconds of heat!

I am definitely in the peri menopause - periods still regular, but short and scanty.

Does that sound like a hot flush?

Sounds a bit like a panic attack?
