Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

feeling hot on body joints and back area and face usually happens when the room temperature varies. People don't accept it as normal one starts becoming anxious. When they fear that happening the heart starts racing and sweat comes out. Sometimes it is possible that they lose sensation of reality when they fear. I hope that is what happened.
Skin of face area might go a bit red in these circumstances. Other symptoms might be due to delusions. Don't worry. Forget the episode.
Good luck.
