BUT lately it seems that I have been waking up more and more having extreme hot flashes when I have no reason to be having them. It is almost always the night of one of my binge/purge days (it's probably of note that I take laxatives after purging too- not an extreme amount, but a few times the recommended dosage). I'll go to bed freezing, but then I'll wake up in the middle of the night so hot that I end up stripping off my clothes and covers.
I'm curious if anyone else has experienced something like this. It's not like I wake up sweating, just unbearably hot. It's more disorienting than anything else, because I go to bed freezing and wake up boiling.
