Uncertain: If you have the "flu" (which i would not just assume given that this is not flu season) and you are having hot flashes (which might represent fevers) then i would suggest that evaluation by your doctor for a source of infection would be a good idea.

Several possibilitie: Hot flashes can be due to menopause, sudden changes in blood sugar, thyroid problems, and occasionally chronic illness like tuberculosis. In general, hot flashes are not normal and a person that experiences severe ones should see a doctor to determine the specific cause.

For you?: Are you asking for yourself? Hot flashes are common during menopause and leading up to it. But you are only 17 yrs old. Are you having hormonal or problems related to your period? When do you get these flashes?
