1. Hot flashes from spicy food

  1. Spicy, spicy foods are known to cause hot flashes. This food dilates your blood vessels and stimulates your nerves. But also caffeine, sulfite (additive in wine) and hot drinks occasionally give off vapeurs.

2. Hot flashes from drugs

  1. Take the package insert: hot flashes are a common side effect of certain medicines. In particular, drugs that act on the hormone balance (such as the pill), antidepressants, beta blockers (drugs that lower heart rate and blood pressure) and opiates (pain killers) can generate this undesirable effect. Medicines for the treatment of osteoporosis, the so-called bisphosphonates, can also cause hot flushes as a side effect. Do you suffer from these kinds of side effects? Always indicate this to your doctor. He or she may be able to switch you to a different medication that does not cause hot flashes. Incidentally, it may also be that the hot flashes stop as soon as your body is used to the medication.

3. Breast Cancer Hot Flashes

  1. As if breast cancer were not bad enough, treatment can have hot flashes as a side effect, also in men. Men produce female hormones, just like women produce male hormones. When treating men with breast cancer with tamoxifen, hot flushes may develop as a side effect of treatment. The chemotherapy that breast cancer patients often receive is also the cause of menopausal symptoms due to the hormone fluctuations it gives. That is age-dependent and can differ per chemo type. Finally, with hormone therapy, estrogen production is temporarily stopped. This disrupts the heat center in your brain, causing hot flashes.

4. Hot flushes from another condition

  1. Breast cancer isn't the only disease that can accompany hot flashes. They also cause other medical problems. For example, it is a known phenomenon in hyperthyroidism (an overactive thyroid gland), it can cause spinal cord injury and viral infections sometimes have this side effect.

5. Pregnancy Hot Flashes

  1. You don't expect it, but just like menopause hot flashes are caused by fluctuations in your hormone balance, the same hormones sometimes cause hot flashes in pregnancy. This mainly occurs in the first and second trimester. The sudden rise in the pregnancy hormone hCG disrupts the 'thermostat' in your brain. This gives you a glowing, red face and makes you sweat. The pregnancy hormone progesterone also makes your blood vessels weaker and thinner. Your circulation changes and accelerates, so that your skin and sweat glands have better blood flow. This will make you warm up faster and sweat.

6. Hot flashes from surgery

  1. A uterine removal (hysterectomy) or removal of the ovaries will lead to an early transition. Including the accompanying hot flashes, annoying enough. A

7. Hot flushes from anxiety or stress

  1. Anxiety and stress can manifest itself in palpitations, triggers and hot flushes. The only way to deal with this is to address the cause through, for example, breathing and relaxation exercises, meditation, mindfulness, coaching or therapy.
