Does Anybody Have Excessive Sweating At Times?

Does Anybody Have Excessive Sweating At Times?

A MyChronicPainTeam Member said:

Sometimes the sweats are caused by certain meds. I remember getting hot and a little sweaty after taking my nightly meds. Now for the bad news. There are a few major factors for hot flashes and sweating for chronic pain sufferers. The first is age along with the meds. The second and worst reason is our sedentary life style. Most of us in pain have a very hard time staying in shape. That’s why we begin to sweat after climbing a few stairs or walking to the mail box. Another reason can be our dependence on pain meds. Lots of pain sufferers don’t realize that the hot flashes and sweats can also be the beginning stages of withdrawal. Missing a dose is all it takes. Most of us never put all the weird pieces together, to figure out all the problems that we have, related to our pain. I hope everyone is managing their pain and has some quality of life. It’s so hard to see a future and remain hopeful, when your pain is out of control. Good luck everyone.

Here is a thought a while ago I was a little thirsty & I don't really like drinking water so I started crushing ice fairly finely I have a Nutribullit & yes I know it is supposed to be for liquidising or juicing but I use it to crush ice I do 3 or4 containers a day have a glass in the morning another at dinnertime and a third later at night what I noticed was that sometimes after it I am really quite cold. For anyone with sweats it may be worth while trying "ice therapy" if nothing else it will make sure you are well hydrated.

I have perspired for 6 hours at a time. I am 5 years into menopause with no hot flashes. I have had a CT scan which showed non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. One of the symptoms is sweating. If you feel something is wrong, like I did, don't settle for less than listening to your body. Demand the tests or treatments you need. You are worth it!

Strangely only my head. Never know when. Really profuse, runs down my face and into my eyes. Embarrassing.

I also sweat after a small amount of walking, shopping or any exercise! Head does seem to be worse than rest of body but all together is a nightmare.
I have the following condition, Arachnoiditis, Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis, and at the end of the year will be retested to confirm a condition called Mitochondrial Myopathy. All painful conditions which had me on Fentanyl patches for 8 years. Last year I had a Spinal Chord Stimulator inserted and have now stopped Fentanyl. I have trouble with energy levels which zap all of a sudden and leave me laying down for an hour to recover.
I am still on Lyrica tablets for nerve pain and symptoms. Would love to know what causes sweating! 😊
