i didnt realise this was anything to do with fibro, i never used to sweat even sat in a sauna it took about a good half hour before it started.
now i have to think about what clothes to wear that day to not get too hot and so that i dont sweat, even thought it happens anyway, i sweat more from the middle to the bottom of my back but not under my arms which i think is odd.
Be nice and smile to everyone you meet.
You don't know what they are going through.
They may need that smile,
and treasure it.

Don't ask how I am unless you really want to know the answer!

I get really bad sweating all over too which is awful as it makes me really self conscious if i am having a bad day with it and need to head out.I did find a good deoderant which helps stop underarm sweating(you can also use it on your feet and hand if they sweat too).

and i thought i was the only 1, lol. when i get out the bath i start to sweat straight away, even thoughi donthav bath hot, cus that causes me palpitations. sometimes i start to smell under my arms b4 ive even finished drying my self. ive been given this roll on from doc at times the smell is putrid. think its when im stressed. this sweat problem started few yrs ago, as i was drying my hair my roots were getting wetter, so after styling id av to do it on cold to redry roots. then id av to av fan on my face to put makeup on, then get in car/taxi n av to av window open even in winter. id fan myself with menus or beermats when out n if i was in busy rooms my head wood leak. should i dance i looked like id stepped out of shower. it was awful n so embarrasing. i cut my hair off thinking it would help, but didnt. it was a few yrs after i got really poorly n found out i had fibro, so didnt think it was related. also every1 in this fb group im in is always complaining how freezing they are. while i sit in my living room naked from waste up, n blanket on knees down. daughters cold n wants heating on while i want windows open. got a 4.5 tog duvet on bed n my head neck n chest drip like im in sauna. was told to try antihystermines but keep forgetting n seem a strange thing to take for it. any knowledge of what works would be fab. asked doc about botox which works by stopping sweat glands, but of course was told no money in nhs service for that.

Good grief it is surprising how many of us suffer like this!!! I had a shower and washed my hair and an hour later its absoloutly wet through again it is so embarrasing as it happens all the time. My sister also has this badly but her gp has given her some tablets to stop it, i dont know what they are called but i will find out as i am going to ask my gp for some. I had put a lot of this down to all the medication that i take but i am really not so sure and it is really dragging me down. I dont even have to be doing anything for it to happen, my hands are freezing yet my whole body is red hot!!! Anyone know where we can get a new thermostat from??? Things are getting desperate for a lot of us to other people they dont realise what a big thing it is and it awful!!! Sorry rant over lol!!!!!!!!!

Millyxxx :-D :grouphug: sorry bout soggy cuddle lol

It's bloody awful isn't it.

I sweat sometimes straight out of the shower, I am drenched just still in a dressing gown.

I also get so hot and red in the face and sweat but I am freezing cold too. I do put talc on but nothing seems to stop it. It is on my stomach and back and knees as well as under arms. :(

Hi

The name of the drug my sister is on to stop the sweating is pro-banthine or other name is propantheline i hope this helps but i am certainly going to ask my gp for some as they are a wonder drug!!!! My sister offered to let me try some of hers but i wont take tablets that are not prescribed for me although it was very tempting lol!!!!! Desperation could lead to us doing anything that might help!!

Millyxxx :-)

ive posted once on this subject already but need to add to it. when i started these sweats i had been on same medication for yrs, and still on the same,so dont think its meds. read up on those u take though just in case. id also like to add that recently i feel like im a microwave oven.i know this sounds funny but i feel this internal burning sensation thru my torso that gets hotter n hotter in seconds. its so strange but i feel like im being cooked from the inside.lol

I suffer too. I also go very very Red at times and find it most embarassing :oops: I know it's not the menopause as I went through that years ago. Think I might do a checklist to compare and see what others have

I am so glad I'm not alone with this, though I am sorry we all have to put up with it.

I often have what I call "hot flushes" though I'm only 29 lol. I can be totally fine one minute and the next I'll have sweat pouring all over me, behind my neck, my face my whole body. It makes me feel so icky I have to have a bath and often I end up having 3 or 4 baths a day lol.

I also get this when I have got out the bath and am drying my hair. I don't have my bath too hot, and I sit down for a bit after to "cool down" before attempting to dry my hair, but it is quite long now (growing it for my wedding in August) and does take a while to dyr it. I refuse to cut it though lol I love my hair!

Other half thinks I'm really strange when I have the bedroom window open while getting ready lol and when I have to stand by the back door when a hot flash suddenly attacks me.

I'm on tramadol and co codamol and I'm sure it's a side effect of one of those.

I just hate the ickyness feeling it gives me lol.

xx

Yes I go bright red and my face and chest is burning hot.

I am in my twenties so hope it's not the menopause.

get them mainly at night ....just thought it was due to me overheating by having too many duvets on the bed because of the cold weather but found it really strange as I can wake up with PJ quite damp & uncomfortable but I still feel cold ?

Thanks for pointing it out

Oh the joys of FM.
