Hot Flushes...for Men???!!!!

i'm a 19 year old student and seem to get these weird hot flush symptons most of the time. It happens especially when I go from say the cold outdoors to say a well heated room. I get this prickly sensation all over my face chest and shoulders. It seems like my body has trouble adjusting to sudden differences in external temperature. Now I do hav a poor lifestyle: I drink, smoke and dont do enough exercise, then again so do the majority of the student population!! If I had to guess it feels like my body is tryin to sweat to cool me down but just cant seem to do it.
This ring any bells with anyone? Or do I simply have to ammend my wicked ways?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These symptoms are consistent with anxiety disorder.I would suggest you to have thyroid function tests to rule out organic cause. If organic cause was not found then consult psychiatrist to evaluate you for anxiety.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
