If he's not having any other symptoms, I wouldn't worry about it. Also, how much is it bothering him? If it's bothering him I would take him to the doctor.

I wouldn't worry. But if you want to take him to the doctor, you can. Maybe he is having a panic attack from the game "excitement"

I also have an 16 year old son who loves playing playstation 3 and Wii.It's normal for them to experience hot flashes because their bodies are changing and also because of the adrenalin when playing their games. But if you keep on worrying, it is best to take him to the doctor.

Yes take him to the doctors if you're worried. If he plays a lot of games it could be carpel tunnel, google it and see if the symptoms are similar. Good Luck xx
