Excessive sweating, especially of my scalp, face, neck to the point that it runs off of my chin. When I walk from a fairly cool room (72 degrees) into a warmer room (80 degrees) the sweat starts rolling out of my hair, going into my eyes!! I'm a 58 year old female and have had this horrible problem for about 2 years now. My GP wants me to see a neurologist because he thinks I could possibly have Multiple Sclerosis. I have had an MRI that showed brain lesions. I will see another neurologist as my GP wants me to. I have other signs/ symptoms of multiple sclerosis as well. I was wondering if any of you have excessive sweating and if the doctors have diagnosed you yet. Thank you, Coleene Preston

I have Dermatomyositis & I sweat 24 hours a day!!! The only time I get a break is if I don't move around. However, sometimes I sweat sitting still. I was taking 60 mgs of methotrexate once a week & 80 mgs of prednisone every day. But my muscle enzymes were still very high . So now I am taking Imuran 3 mgs a day & 60 mgs of Prednisone daily. Besides the horrible rash all over, my muscles are extremely weak & I feel like I have the flu every day!! Believe it or not I can deal with my symptoms from the Dermatomyositis but the excessive sweating all day is a nightmare!! I can't even wear makeup. I am not only embarrassed by my skin condition but my sweating is worse. I don't know if my sweating is from my disease or the prednisone I have to take!! I also suffer from severe anxiety & insomnia! I feel like I am losing my mind! Does anyone else suffer like me??
I have recently started taking Zoloft for depression and have always had hyperhidrosis. Taking Zoloft has increased my hand and feet sweating almost unbearably. Does anyone else have that problem? Is there anything I can do to minimize the effects? Its embarrassing and irritating. :(
I took a shot last night. I had nightmares, yelling out in my sleep and it is now 4:30 pm and I am on my fourth change of clothing from profuse sweating. I have not felt well today yet I hope for tomorrow to be better. I have taken the Orencia weekly or bi-weekly for a little over a year now. I had been off the orencia for two weeks up to last night and today I am having this experience. I have noticed night sweats before and light-heavy sweating (droplets falling from face and running down back) yet nothing like this before. I am personally questioning the quality control of the drug. Also I contacted the pharmacy as well as the prescribing doctors office and both said they had never heard of the sweating. Ha! The inmates are running the asylum. p.s. why doesnt a site designed to be a support group for orencia have the correct spelling for orencia in the spell checker? Inmates running the asylum? I plan to seek the advice of a recommended holistic doctor first chance and will try to keep readers informed of my experiences. My e.m.a.i.l. is salinaaa1234 at the g.m.a.i.l.
