I'm a 60 yo white female, p Iost menopausal since 1995.I live outside of Chicago.I've had RA for 30 years. I'm 5'1" and wieght 190#.
I had right knee replaced 3 years ago. After this first surgery, my RA got worst and I couldn't return to work.My lower back pain got worst. Two years ago I woke up one morning and my left leg was numb. I was diagnosised with spinal stenosis and had 2 back surgeries to rebuild and fuse my back.That leg never came back.After this, I noticed I was sweating more than usual. Last year, I had my other knee replaced.I sweat as if I was going through the change again: hot liquids, walking across the room or worst, exercise! I'll be drenched completely, hair, waistband,back just dripping in sweat.I've recently had lab work, everything is normal. I stopped Cymbalta and the only other things that may cause sweating is my 10mg prednisone and 40mg Arava, daily. Is there anything I can do? I'm trying to watch my weight and possibly lose. I sweat getting dress! I need help!

  • I believe alot of my symptoms are related but after seeing 7 different specialists and them running many different tests I still don't have a diagnosis. Many of the tests are abnormal but nothing seems to fit completely together. My gastroenterologist is referring me to a surgeon for severe gastro reflux that can't be controlled with medication. I can't take the ferrous sulfate because of nausea.
