You're doing your thing, minding your own business, when you start to feel the heat. It's like someone injected your skin with whatever comes in those little hand-warming gel packets.

Hot flashes are annoying, and they can leave you with a pounding heart, flushed skin, and—when they pass—a sweat-stained shirt and a case of the chills.

While it's true that hot flashes are usually associated with menopause and perimenopause, women (and men) of any age can experience them, says Beth Battaglino, RN, CEO and women's health expert with the nonprofit HealthyWomen. "Hot flashes can strike at any time and for a lot of different reasons," Battaglino explains.
