Heat flashes every night, any help?

Within the past three months or so, I've been getting heat flashes off and on at night, but recently it's become a daily thing, and is starting to happen during the day as well. It feels like in burning up, while everyone else in my family will say a room is cold. It tends to get the hottest on my hands, feet, back, inner thighs, and neck. My hands will get really red, and I'll also feel really thirsty. I can't fall asleep until the flashes pass, which can take anywhere from thirty minutes to hours, and it sometimes causes me to wake up in the middle of the night. I'm currently going to the doctor for anxiety, nerve, and stomach issues, but no problems have been solved in those areas. Still, I wonder if its connected. Also, its worth mentioning I am only 17 years old, so I don't want to hear about menopause. Now, if anyone has any clue as to what's going on with me, or even just a way to relieve these heat flashes, I'd be extremely grateful!
