Vasodilation: These symptoms suggest a vasodilation phenomenon. Possible causes include anxiety, stress, caffeine,spices or alcohol effect or hormonal imbalances. Has your thyroid status been checked? Are you taking any medications which could cause vasodilation? Perhaps an evaluation by an internist or endocrinologist would be worthwhile.
