I get really hot and sweat drips off my face , my arms and face turn red can this be caused by my blood pressure of medication i take ?

No: The only med you list for BP is Aldactone and that wouldn't cause it. An overdose of synthroid (thyroxine) could - has your TSH been checked (blood sample). Most likely, it's physiologic (normal response to overheating).

What causes night sweats? Had blood work done everything is normal but still i wake up almost every night soaked in sweat only using a light blanket

What causes night sweats? Had blood work done everything is normal but still i wake up almost every night soaked in sweat  only using a light blanket

See below: Night sweats: there are many potential causes to sweating at night. The term night sweats generally refers to excessive sweating at night related to a hormone imbalance. There is no one answer to explain the origin of sweating at night. Some common causes are: infection, some cancers, several medications, low blood sugars and a host of other less common reasons. Were going to focus in on the hormone imbalance commonly seen in menopause, although by no means limited to menopause. We have seen a common night sweats picture in the men with prostate cancer with elevated estrogen levels. Swelling often starts around your neck. We generally start with saliva testing which allows us to identify what the hormone imbalance actually is and treat accordingly. When we don't start with saliva testing we very often get very good success with progesterone cream in the form of wild yam cream. There are many different preparations of wild yam cream on the market and often the preparation does not have enough progesterone cream to be effective. The above is the simple answer the better answer is to work with a healthcare professional who has experiencing natural hormone therapy.
