LCIS - BC in family -- NIGHTLY HOT FLASHES & PALPITATIONS - Can't sleep - MISERABLE & CONFUSED

Hello,

I am 61 and have been in menopause one decade. I lost my dear sister to BC at age 42. About 10 years ago I had a surgical biopsy that said LCIS. Since then normal mammos but dense breasts.

I have waited for these symptoms to "pass" but now it's pretty clear they never will. My nightly routine is horrible palpitations and hot flashes and as a result very poor sleep. There is so much confusing and conflicting information about HRT. Is there anyone in the same boat who has found a solution? Can I start some sort of HRT so late? Thanks for listening. Sleepless and grouchy.

    Are you on an aromatase inhibitor?

    Hello, I'm not on any drugs. Just tired of being on fire—it's not normal. Would like to consider HRT to stop the heat
