I am 49 and recently I have been having trouble sleeping and getting hot and sweaty at night. Today at work i had a series of hot flushes that made me feel quite ill. I had a series of palpitations, which scared me, as they were sporadic. Are these possible symptoms of the menopause?

This is very common on the approach to the menopause; but as your symptoms seem quite severe it would be a good idea to see your doctor for a check-up before taking any remedies. Drink plenty of water to avoid worsening the situation by being dehydrated (this is a key cause of palpitations), and if it is confirmed as the menopause then consider taking an extract of Sage to control the flushes and sweats.
