Whay causes trigger finger with flushes?

for six months I ve been experiencing moderate flushing feelings only at night they start off small in my chest then spreads. Its s not hot flashes, I ve had them before and stopped having them two years ago. It happens 2 to 3 times at night and theres no sweating. I also have what the orthopedic says is trigger finger in my right thumb and now it seems the same is happening with my left thumb. Oh and also the flushing feeling is only alleviated by getting out of bed and moving around. Please someone help, I m a retired nurse and have never heard of these symptoms could they be related?

As you are retired and may be after the age of 55, may be you are in menopause, due to that you may encounter flushes. However, more worry, tension and fear also cause flushes. It's okay. You just need to relax and cool down. Your problem is trigger finger see it's totally muscles imbalance in fingers, we can prevent it from spreading with good physiotherapy treatment. You can take ultrasound therapy and IFT therapy also for pain relief and prevention of stiffness.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
