waking up with body overheating?

i dont know what causes it, cause it never happened before (or never got bad until like 8 years ago) i would wake up, my entire body & face is red (appearancewise) & my face & body is hot to the touch & this doesnt go away until 30 minutes later, sometimes where i have to use a cold compress to sooth my face, my relative kept thinking it was cause of a heater even though i told her that wasnt it. so i dont know if it's cause i have poor blood circulation or what (im cold in my feet all the time, but the rest of my body burns up and i dont have a normal body temperature to where it feels normal)i do have damaged bones in my body from years ago so i dont know if that could interfere with blood flow.

    It's probably a hormone imbalance or a metabolic problem. You'd have to see a doctor and get blood work done.

    A fever doesn't persist for 8 years without major complications. 

      The body's temperature is regulated by a command center in your brain called the hypothalamus.   The hypothalamus 'gives orders' to various parts of the body, mostly controlling the autonomic nervous system (ANS) as well as to the liver and thyroid (and other organs) to create homeostasis,  what you would just call 'being'.

    One part of homeostasis is the body temperature and it is governed by hormones made by the thyroid. 

    A thyroid, liver or hypothalamus (or all 3) error is most likely causing your problem. 

    8 years tells me no doctor.   Now you've got a reason to go.  I'm betting hypothyroidism...caused by liver dysfunction caused by a diet containing regular added sugars and white flour products. 

    Your doctor is likely to treat your problem.   I just told you how to possibly reverse it.

    Sounds to me like you had a fever.

    Damaged bones?????  Not sure how they are damaged, or why you think that would impact blood flow.  No idea how "impacted blood flow" would cause you to be "hot all over".

    Surely you have had a fever before???
