Brief Answer:
To rule out Excess Thyroid hormone

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

Dear Ms

Let's analyse your symptoms.

1. Sweating: Especially during night and feeling of inappropriately hot with relation to surrounding, possibility of excess Thyroid hormone needs to be considered and ruled out.
Have you undergone Thyroid function test which includes Serum T3, T4 and TSH?

2. Nasal problem:

I would like to have additional information about it
a) Are you able to smell properly?
b ) Has any examination of nose and paranasal sinus been done by ENT Surgeon or your Physician?

From the description given so far possibility of vasomotor rhinitis and chronic atrophic rhinitis needs to be considered and ruled out thorough examination.
Taking steam inhalation preferably using a electronic steamer for 15 minutes each session thrice a day will be helpful for nasal and flushing of face issues.
Also excessive thyroid hormones needs to be ruled out as the cause.

Do get back to me.

Take care

Best Regards
Dr T Shobha Deepak
