The sweating and hot flashes can be reaction to pain and inflammation. If you're in chronic pain, you can have systemic reactions to it that manifests like that.

With the caveat that I'm an engineer and not a medical professional, I'd suggest that if a thorough set of blood tests doesn't show up with anything odd, concentrate on the spinal problems and see if everything else resolves after you get those addressed. I don't know where in BC you are but there's a ND that Laura and I see in Seattle that's pointed us towards an online company for the blood tests and then was willing to help interpret the results by phone. That might be a way to put your concerns to rest even if you're struggling with your local docs. PM me if you'd like the ND's contact info.
Laura - L5S1 Charitee
C5/6 and 6/7 Prodisc C
Facet problems L4-S1
Knee, Shoulder, Toe, Finger, Elbow Problems

Jim - no spine problem but lots of other fun medical challenges
