Welcome to Just Answer.
How frequently do you feel it?
once or twice a day on some days, then not at all on others.
When did it start?
about a month ago - I had been overmedicated with Cozaar at the time, so I stopped taking that (it was making my sleep 14 hours a day) and then I just started taking my bp every day and taking the spironolactone when my bp was elevated
Did you consult doctor for this symptom?
Did you have any test recently?
My doc tested my liver function and it was fine. He ran some routine bloods on me about three or four weeks ago
Are you diabetic? Were the blood tests normal?
Not diabetic - could be soon if I don't watch, but not diagnosed as such
This is likely due to nerve impulses.
Would I experience the flushes after sugary foods?
There can be a few factors.
Is there a way to stop them?
Impingement of nerve can cause it.
Thyroid disorders can be associated with it.

Low calcium can also be a factor.
