Post Rosacea testing

Is there a specific test that is given to diagnose rosacea? I am going to demand I have it, despite what thet twerp of a doctor said in my previous thread.......

I've had rosacea for about 8 years. My advice to you would be to drink a glass of wine & then look at your face in a mirror. If you are flushed & feel hot, you probably have it. Also, stress will cause flare ups (for me). Other triggers can be spicy food, hot weather, cold weather. Noritate works well controlling it.

I always thought I had some type of redness problem, not sure if rosacea, but whenever i put my head upside down it comes red as a beet real quick. When I am embarrassed too I can get red quick. And I have little redness sometimes on my face and my mother's whole face is a reddish color. I don't know if it's from stress or something more.
