3. Cold/Hot Sweats
Sudden breakouts of cold or hot sweat along with clammy skin and one or two other symptoms, is a sign to get immediate help. When you have clammy skin it feels cold and damp and it is not normal in any instance.
For women who are going through perimenopause, it is quite difficult to separate “normal ” hot flashes from heart attack sweating. Go to a doctor, if you wake up with soaked sheets or you can’t sleep due to excessive sweating.
