For several years I have been experiencing unexplained flushing. It is my chest and neck. I have been checked for carcinoid syndrome and had extensive blood work to see if it was possibly menopause and they both came back negative. My family doctor is also confused and puzzled by this. It happens for no apparent reason and there have been times that I experienced panic attacks also.
This is very embarrassing and finally brought me to tears last night while in the doctors office. I'm at my wits end. I don't want to go to social gatherings because of this.
Has anyone experienced this and had success at getting it treated?
I'm desperate!!
