Do You Have Sweating Issues Regardless Of The Temp In Your Environment
A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question πŸ’­

Regardless of how cool/cold it is around me I will sweat a ridiculously large amount and my ears get red and actually feel hot. It's like my internal thermostat is out of wack, I can just be sitting for this to start so I was wondering if any one else has dealt with this and if so how do you deal with it

Absolutely, chronic pain and perimenopause don't mix. I get hot flashes all the time related to both issues I mentioned and sometimes they overlap. At night I found a cooling matress pad , cooling pillows, and a fan on all the time even when the air conditioning is on helps a lot. During the day is worse for me especially in the summer where I closely monitor the weather. Humidity, dew point, pressure, outdoor temperature, and precipitation all play a roll in sweating with dizziness which is only connected to pain. Here I take my meds more often than my norm but within my prescribed amount. I take Oxycodone 10mg /Acetaminophen 325mg. Here if the pain is still unmanageable I may add 2 regular strength ( 325mg ) Acetaminophen / Tylenol keeping the total amount of Acetaminophen under 1 gram and not doing that more than 2 a day but not every day. I rest as much as possible and most importantly I drink a lot of extra fluids. If I am walking my dog, I make sure I am not dizzy when I take her out and I do short walks and bring water for both of us and sit as often as needed.

I read on a Fibromyalgia website that they are finding that many fibromyalgia patients list profuse sweating as a symptom which somewhat makes sense since your autonomic system is involved in many of these autoimmune disorders.

If I move at all, like walking around the house, grocery shopping, any house cleaning...I am a sweat hog! The sweat just drips down my face, in my hair then down the back of my neck, under my shirt, everywhere! I carry a fan in my purse and I use like magazines where ever I am at to fan myself. I fan myself even if a fan is running on me! I have been accused of doing too much but usually I don't. What do you do when you have to grocery shop? Is this too much? Man, what a mess!

I suffered from hyperhidrosis for years so after searching I found a treatment called Iontophoresis, which a great deal but found after a while my throat was very dry after the treatment and I had to take soup for my dinner as other food was difficult to swallow. So after more research found a medication which had a side effect that really helped with the sweating problem, it’s for urinary urgency but the side effect really helped me for years. I did speak to my then GP about it and he agreed to letting me try it and I never looked back over 30 years ago. I’ve only just stopped taking it as I’m retired and don’t suffer with it as much now. The medication is called oxybutynin hydrochloride

I've been mia due to medical issues, spinal fusion pain, Parkinson's and now cancer have become my day. Literally from the tips of my toes to the headache, the pain is never gone. On a good day I can partially ignore it, but most days are 24 7 pain. I'm kinda sick of people telling me to meditate, I want to tell them to ignore their poverty through positive thinking (just joking, pain is pain and if you haven't experienced it you don't know).
I would trade almost anything to have a pain free day.
