It’s SCIENCE!

 

I Did a little science experiment yesterday because of something my co-worker was curious about.  As I have mentioned a thousand times I am lucky enough to have experienced very early menopause.  One of the major symptoms of this was Hot Flashes!  These have eased off over the last couple of years, and in the last year they were almost non-existent thanks to some splendid herbal remedies.  They started returning over the last few months.  I’m sure due to other remedies and diet changes.  So, the people around me have also had to experience me, experiencing the hot flashes.

Now, the way I cope with things is to examine them.  If I can make it an interesting experience it becomes much more bearable. So when Mike said he was curious about what my body temperature actually did during a hot flash I was all about finding out.  I have an I.R. Thermometer.  The kind you point at something to get the surface temp.  So yesterday I checked my surface temp a couple of times and it was always 97.5 or 98 degrees.  When I had a hot flash I took my temp in the same spot (my neck) again.  And then when I had another one I did it again to see if my findings were repeatable.  Do you know what happens?  The surface temperature of my neck went to 93 degrees.  That’s a pretty big drop to have happen suddenly.

And that’s your science fact for today.
