Yes! I have this same thing. It’s so frustrating it’s really affecting all aspects of my life now. Im a critical care nurse so every time I have a tense situation it happens and everyone freaks out- it’s so embarrassing. I’ve been to several doctors and can’t seem to get a diagnosis. Have you had any luck since this post?
I have periods of this. I believe from researching it myself that it's a form of social anxiety.
I have somehow recently managed to overcome it. I've gone from having the hot flushes in most social situations to now managing to be 'normal'. I thought it wasn't going to go away and I can honestly say it is a confidence thing and a vicious circle.... you're in a social situation, remember you're going to get all hot and there it comes - woosh, bright red face and chest.
The only thing that seems to have helped me is starting supplements (well I've been on them a while now) but that is all I can think of that's changed - I take evening primrose oil daily, L-lysine and a good multi-vitamin. I've also forced myself to be more social and tried to gain some control in those social situations. Like having a glass of water to keep me cool at my desk... the more I started to stop flushing / getting anxious, the less the hot flushes have appeared. I'm hoping I've seen the back of them for the foreseeable future.
Just a thought, do you tend to have anxiety and/or depression?
