Sorry to hear about the flashes.
I had them when I took a herb called Guggul.
Thankfully they stopped when I figured out what was causing it.
Are you taking any over the counter supplement for your thyroid, or just Synthroid?
One of the symptoms of Rosacea is the flushing you are talking about here.
My sister had Rosacea... that's when I became familiar with it.
Not sure what you mean by your thyroid went crazy... that could be anything to an extremely high TSH and autoantibody titer (extreme hypothyroid disease), or a thyroid storm (extreme and sudden onset of hyperthyroid disease) or a few other things.
A proper dose of Synthroid will not give you hot flashes.
Excess may. 250mcgs is a lot of Synthroid, usually they'll start you off at 50 mcgs and work up until they find a dosage that keeps your TSH under a 2, and your Free Ts midrange.
Hope you are feeling better, soon.
I think you will once your doc gets you on the right dose of thyroid replacement medication.
