isn't it AWFUL?......tho i have to say from my own personal experience that real hot flashes aren't as bad as rsd temperature quirks.....the hot feeling may be as bad, but the rsd 'flashes' always last much longer for me.
i don't remember what meds u r taking (sorry, but i'm lucky if i can remember my own) but i'm inclined to blame the rsd itself and not the pills, because i've had spells of no meds at all, and still had the loss of temp control.....that works both ways with me - if i get hot, i can't cool off and if i get chilled, i can't warm up.
one thing that has helped with the rsd 'hot flashes' is a warm shower.....maybe jsut coincidence, but it has helped several times....(only rsd patients would treat hot sensations with heat, right?)......i tried it in desperation one time when i was so hot i thought i was going to do the spontaneous combustion trick....and since soaking in hot water aften helps with my feet when they're burning, i figured it was worth a try.
i wish i had more to offer....it's truly a miserable feeling.
best to all,
