I am a 54 year old male. I am experiencing significant facial flushing and heat, usually from when I wake up in the mornings, although not every morning. I have also noted that sometimes in bed I seem to be ‘overheating’ in my torso, albeit when perhaps having one blanket too many. The only physical changes that may be relevant are that over the last 7 months I have been running 3 times per week, for the first time in many years. I am now up to about 18 miles per week (9, 5,4 ) all at quite a slow pace. However I feel fitter and my heart rate at rest is around 60 and is reasonable during exercise as I monitor with a Garmin running watch. I also have a persistent ache in my right hip, which seems to be running related.
I have also been taking 10mg of Omeprazole daily for many years. Fairly recently this has been an OTC tablet as opposed to the previously used capsules.
So it has calmed down a little now. Focus is on forehead and below eyes and cheeks.
Is this anything to be worried about?
OK, many thanks.
