This is important that to know if you are a regular smoker or you have started smoking just now.
If you are a regular smoker and than you are experiencing this problem than it can be some problem, but you started smoking just now and you are having the feeling of dizzyness and flushing, it is mainly because of the nicotine present in the cigarette, which stimulate the body and produces this effect.
I would advise you to stop smoking and try to keep you away from this bad habit which is very addicting and very difficlut to leave once you are addicted.
Thanks and take care.

Hello anan.992,

Welcome to the forum. Your symptoms are indicative of nicotine effect on your brain. If you are addicted to smoking, the hot flashes are because of it. If you are a new cigarette smoker your body has reacted to nicotine. Cigarettes cause deadly lung diseases. If you are a new smoker, do not smoke, it will affect your health and destroy your lungs in long run.

If you are addicted to smoking, the dizziness is because of too much smoke in the lungs ( causing hot flashes ) and lack of sufficient oxygen. The dizziness is also because of nicotine affecting the brain adversely and insufficient quantity of oxygen supply to the brain.

It is better for you to see a doctor in the emergency room and get managed to relieve you of your symptoms. You may need an oxygen mask. Drink plenty of pure hygienic water and breath slowly to feel better. Try in inhale and hold breath before you breath out to help the tissues get more oxygen supply. Have a good day. Take care.
