What causes flushing episodes?

Hi - I've recently been dianosed with POTS syndrome (as well as Adrenal insufficiecy / Addison's, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Raynauds) and have been told it could explain my episodes of tremendous flushing.

I am not sure i understand how the two (POTS and flushing of face) can be related - does anyone understand this? It seems to sometimes get worse upon eating......

I take florinef (I have for years b/c of the Addison's) - could that be contributing?

Thanks so much!

- Brita
