Overheating/muscle spasms

Father is having hot flashes. The hot flashes have increased in length recently which has effected his ability to sleep- (only sleeping 2 hours a night)

He is taking Baclofin 20 mg every 8 hours and Tizanadine 2 mg 3 times a day. The doctors said his hot flashes are due to the muscle spasms and did not give any advice besides putting him on hospice/pain medication. :\

We're wondering if the community has any ideas that could help him. Currently we're using ice packs to cool off his back and chest (trunk area) but that gives little relief. He isn't dehydrated or having anxiety either..

He's pretty miserable at this point. Any advice is welcomed as our doctors seem to have no answers.

Thank you <3
