Default actonel

I've now taken two doses of the weekly form of actonel and have noticed an increase in hot flashes and some joint soreness. I'm wondering about the phrase "postmenopausal." When asked by the nurse in my doctor's office if I was postmenopausal I said yes. I had a total hysterectomy almost 20 years ago and have been on hrt ever since. I'd been experiencing some hot flashes at night but that was my only symptom. Since starting this med, though, I'm feeling very menopausal. Anyone else experienced this? I don't see anything about these symptoms being listed in possible side effects. I had the medicine prescribed while I was in the States recently but am now back in my home in Hungary. Guess I'll have to make some phone calls both here and there.
