I have been getting intense waves of heat going through my body all day. It happens sporadically throught the month. It feels like my blood is on fire or something. I've already gone through menopause so its not that. Has anyone else experienced this and, if so, can you tell me what's happening?

Actually, while increased bursts of thyroid hormone may be a culprit, I would also have endocrinologist look at hormonal dis-regulation syndrome. Even though you are past menopause, lupus can induce menopause-like hot flash symptoms (which can also occur in men with lupus).
If it is lupus induced, suggests a mass release of histamine by masts cells. Can stop that reaction by taking antihistamines. I use OTC 12-hour Loratidine and 12-hour Ceterizine twice daily as both a break-out regimen as well as daily for a preventive measure. This cuts down about 1/2 of sweats. Remainder comes from hormonal dis-regulation.
Yes I get the heat as well. I believe it’s our body going through inflammation
I have been through menopause, too. I get incredible waves of sweating. To the point where I look like my hair and shirt have been saturated with water. On hormone therapy, which is helping a little. It’s incredibly embarrassing. It seems I can no longer regulate my body temperature.
I hope you can get answers! If this Dr doesn’t know go find one that does! She will help you if she cares & does her job like she should💜😘🙏🏼
