You are experiencing a vasovagal response, triggered by the cold water. Usually people loose conciousness but a person can experience the feeling of being extremely hot and flushed. Refer to the following link for more information and consult your doctor for an examination and further tests to determine the cause: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasovagal
