Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.

I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.

At age 13 it would be advisable to do thyroid assessment. Some times bith hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism can lead to such hot flushes.
Also a complete blood count showing hemoglobin should be useful as anemia can also have this presentation.
There is no need to panic and things will be simple.

Hope I am able to answer your concerns.

If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
