What causes anxiety along with hot flushes?

Can you please help me. I m a 55 year old outgoing succesful businessman. Nearly 5 months ago I woke up in the early hours feeling agitated and wanting to get out the house! No panic or heart racing etc just this feeling that I needed to get out. I drove for about 3 hours then wnet home and fell asleep. Since then I have had tingling sensations in my left side face and around my head on and off, mostly on. I rea and concluded that I may have developed an anxiety condition having never had it before. However, I have seen 2 Pyschologist who have both told me I am not showing anxious signs at all!. I have even taken some online Anxiety tests and which are showing normal and better than normal results. I have no associated symptoms with anxiety other than sensations I have desribed. I also get these strange Hot Flushes so my GP decided to have my Testosterone level checked. It came back at 6.5 the lowest she had ever seen! So I have now started Testosterone replacement therapy 15 days ago with the 12 week injection in my buttock. My question. What do you think is going on and why wont these sensations dissapear?

I constantly overheat when in public regardless of temperature, I stay extremely well hydrated but as soon as I leave my apartment and go to uni or up the street I will get really hot flushes and find it unbearable. I m only 20 years old and very fit but I can t stand being in a room with people let alone go to class.

My daughter who is 14, has been having good hot flashes . The Dr did blood work, and said her vitamin D levels were low and to increase the levels to take a vitamin , increase her I take with foods and sun exposure. The Dr did another blood test her level is a 29 now. He dosen the think it is due to her vitamin D levels now. She has anxiety, can the sleep well, normal blood pressure, but has always been under weight. Could it be pheochromocytoma?
