Hi,
Welcome to Ja and thanks for this question. I'm sorry to her about your symptoms. I just came online to see that you have been waiting for sometime so I'll quickly answer this question for you. Actually there are number of conditions which can cause this problem. The first one which comes to mind is that you could be experiencing irregular heart rhythm or beats which are known as heart arrhythmias. This is not exactly heart disease and can occur at any age group. This would explain all the symptoms that you have and can be diagnosed with the help of a simple EKG, echocardiogram and also with the help of a 24 hour Holter monitor which looks at the heart for a period of 24 hours. Once diagnosed it can be treated with specific medications.
Another cause of this could be associated with an endocrine problem such as a thyroid disorder. This can also explain all of your symptoms. It would be diagnosed with a simple blood test like thyroid function tests and then treated with medications depending on the exact nature of the problem. Given your symptoms it is likely to be hyperthyroidism.
Yet another cause of this could be associated with a disease known as carcinoid syndrome. This would cause the intermittent sweating, flushing etc and this occurs due to the release of chemicals from benign tumors in multiple locations in the body. This would be diagnosed with specific tests including 5 hiaa levels in the urine and mri of certain body locations. Once diagnosed it can be treated with medications and removal of the benign tumors.
I would suggest that you have your doctor look into these issues.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
