Does anyone suffer with cold clammy sweats in their face ? Very different from hot menopausal sweats, this cold feeling sometimes lasts for hours ???, difficult to deal,with, my face does not look red at all, that way not noticeable to others, so I should be grateful,for that, but I feel very uncomfortable with this feeling plus # concentration is very poor. :crazy:

Hope everyone has a pain free weekend as possible

((( gentle hugs to you all )))

Are you on any new medication?

When I started on the milnacipran, the first couple of days it felt like my face was completely drenched in cold sweat. :lol: But it was just a feeling, it was dry to the touch, which was bizarre, as I could have sworn the cold sweat was flowing down it, like a waterfall.

Thanks for your replies, much appreciated, it helps so much to know we are not alone.

No I am not on any new medication, but the cold sweat feeling is very bizarre and uncomfortable, it has been happening to me now for a long time, I am into my 14th year with fibro, and the whole illness is still bizarre to me!!!! :(
The good days I admit bring hope and peace, and the bad times will always improve.....it's sometimes when you get no relief, it can become hard to,stay positive....but we have to try.....tomorrow is always a brand new day, and if only something small is achieved....it is a bonus.
Yes, the cold sweats will break out if I try to hurry, especially when energy levels are low.

Alongside fibro, I have an under active thryoid, medication controlled for the rest of my life, but since this was diagnosed, I have struggled in both very hot and very cold weather, my GP told me....your internal thermostat is wonky now, so hey ho, keep taking the tablets.
Being under active makes the body sluggish, with that and Pregablin for fibro pain, I struggle with my weight, if the medication made us feel sooo much better, we would have the energy and motivation to excersise and diet.!!
But I guess that is too much to ask . :(

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend the best you all can :-)

Take care
