I feel your agony! I started with sweating and heat sensitivity back in my mid-40's, but it was mild then. I thought it was just my age. Years later, it became much worse and my heart went crazy. I was diagnosed with tachycardia. I was sent from one doctor to another and they all thought I had a neuroendocrine type tumor secreting high levels of norpinephrine. Years later, I was finally diagnosed with fibromyalgia but now, they are thinking I have RA or Psoriatic Arthritis. Before all this, another doctor thought I might have Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). Since then, I've learned there is a link between POTS and RA, PSA, and Fibro. I sweat for no reason. I sweat more if I just "stand," versus walking, but the worst is standing or walking or even sitting when the heat and humidity (or dewpoint) becomes high. It's a nightmare! I have to keep the house freezing cold, freeze my co-workers to death at the office. (I had a hysterectomy at age 22 so menopause has never been the culprit.) Sweat just pours out of me and all over! You might check out POTS---not that you'll ever get any relief for it!

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!

- What side effects do you experience from sulpfasalazine? (3 answers)
(Asked by a 58 year old woman who has Rheumatoid Arthritis, and takes Sulfasalazine)
I began taking sulfasalazine 5 days ago for Rheumatoid arthritis. Since then I've had stomach cramps and bloating. Has anyone else experienced these side effects? If so, did the symptoms go away after using taking the meds for a while? And did the meds help the RA symptoms?

SUPPORT GROUP IN UNITED STATES!!!
Hi, the only support group that I've been able to find for people with insulinomas is located in the UK... just wondering if there is one in the US. I had pancreatic surgery to remove my first insulinoma in 2012, we're thinking there's another because I'm still having problems with hypoglycemia... if anyone know anything, PLEASE CONTACT ME!!! :)
I know there can't just be a support group here for FERRETS!!! people are kind of important... I hate this song, but "Don't worry, BE HAPPY" is okay, I guess... I'm trying to force it upon myself. Things will get BETTER!!!

(Asked by a 56 year old woman who has Hign Blood Pressure, Osteoporosis Postmenopausal, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and takes Methotrexate)
I am a 56 year old female with tingling in my right shoulder blade and some tenderness. I have occasional breast discomfort in the same side and sometimes my rt. nipple feels sensitive. If I touch the area, the symptom on the nipple vanishes. at times the tingling travels into my neck and symptoms seem more noticeable in the evening. If I shower in a warm shower the symptoms will vanish for a time.. All my mammograms have been normal and never miss any but it has me very worried. I check my breasts often for lumps. From time to time it also seems like I have tenderness along the sternum on that side. I have rhematoid arthritis as well as was recently told I have osteoporosis. I had a thoracic x-ray and they can see loss of bone density and some vertebrae degeneration. Take methotrexate each week and folic acid every day....Any ideas out there???? Thanks

My blood pressure was always low 120/68 now since being treated for rheumatoid arthritis it has shot up to 175/92
- Had nms in 2005, will trileptal increase chance of recurrence?
(Posted by a 62 year old woman who has Narcolepsy, Prinzmetal's Angina , Antiphospholipid Syndrome, High Blood Pressure, Obsessive-compulsive Personality Disorder, Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome, Migraine With Aura, Herniated Intervertebral Disk, Osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Diabetes Mellitus Insulin-dependent, Bipolar I Disorder, and takes Benadryl, Baclofen, Plaquenil, Nitro-bid, Maxalt-mlt, Imitrex, Zofran Odt, Ms Contin, Clonidine, Amlodipine Besylate, Novolog Flexpen, Levemir Flexpen, Halcion, Valium, Primidone, Neurontin, Trileptal)
In 2005 I had NMS, which was not detected by my drs for 4 months. I'd been on Lexapro & Seroquel for 2 yrs, but was weaned from Lexapro & placed on Lamictal 3/05. Began getting low-grade fevers, which I was told were not caused by the Lamictal. I quit taking it anyway, fevers (along with uncontrollable shivering) continued & got higher. By 5/05 my temps were reaching 105 deg F. Husband said I became combative, refused to go to hospital. Early June/05 he came home to find me wrapped in blankets, with a temp over 105 F. He tried to place me in a tub of cold water, said I was rigid & screamed when he tried to move me. I was in the tub, speaking "in tongues" (his description, I have no memory of this). He called 911, took me to hospital. I woke, no idea where I was or why. After a lumbar puncture & 2 days in ICU I went home. The fevers continued...2 weeks later he came home to find me wrapped in sheets, towels, blankets, with the heat on full (it was in the 90's outside) he called ambulance again. I awoke to find myself under an ice blanket with nurses pushing large vials of dantrolene into both arms, several liters. Another LP, a stint in ICU...this time they told me it was NMS. The dr who dxd me said he was surprised I was alive, & not a vegetable, as my temp had peaked at 109 deg F. I suffered brain damage; short-term memory loss, brain can't control my body temp, my blood pressure went up. An arteriogram showed completely healthy heart & arteries, no plaque at all. I lost all body fat as well as some muscle mass. The fevers continued even after stopping the Seroquel. I visited my PCP for a checkup in 9/05, temp was normal. I started shuddering, my temp went up a full degree every 5 minutes. PCP admitted me to ER, my heart rate was over 272 B/M; they stopped my heart 3 times to "reset" it, which didn't work. I spent 3 days in hospital. Several months later my P doc tried me on Lamictal alone; I got Stevens-Johnson syndrome. I stopped the drug as soon as the signs appeared. I've been untreated, except for Neurontin & Primidone, until my manic episodes became unlivable. 3 weeks ago I went 8 days with no sleep, became psychotic. My P doc gave me Trileptal, which has evened my moods, but I've been getting low-grade fevers (highest was 103.6). Would having had NMS in the past make me more prone to falling to it again with the Trileptal? It's the only new med I've taken in over a year.

Pain killers like Tylenol 3, vicodin 20 years, Valium and Soma 12 years. Sweat heavy during sleep.
- Sulfasalazine and the never ending menstrual cycle
(Posted by a 43 year old woman who has Arthritis - Rheumatoid, and takes Sulfasalazine)
I started this drug and never had menstrual problems begore. Within 3 months, I started my period and it never stopped even with stopping the drug for 3 mon ths. I ended up going my gyne and he prescribed megace. I had been bleeding for a total of 6 months. Made an appt with my rhuemy and explained this situation. His words were "it hasn't been listed in the literature as a side effect". Keep taking it. I started it again. Same situation and same treatment. Never took it again and changed rheumy.
- Vasculitis from enbrel
(Posted by a 53 year old woman who has Rheumatoid Arthritis, and takes Enbrel)
I have deep scars on my legs from vasculitis. This was caused by Enbrel. Initially no one would connect the two: per my rheumatologist 'no one has ever reported vasculitis as a side effect of enbrel.' (2003)
I had to suspend the enbrel for 8 weeks in preparation for complex abdominal surgery. The vasculitis started to heal. Several weeks after the surgery I resumed enbrel and the vasculitis returned by the second or third enbrel shot. The Dr was reluctantly willing to concede that 'it may have been the enbrel.'
The vasculitis was horrific. I've never felt so much pain, pain that wasn't abated in the least by pain medicine. My dermatologist describe it as being equivalent to a third degree burn: the skin dies, nerves start to regenerate but aren't protected by the dermis.
The scars look like I had flesh torn from my legs that didn't quite 'fill in.'
Rheumatologists are too pushy about these biological medicines. They brush past even the most serious side effects. Anything for mobility... I'd prefer not to skip to dialysis sessions or treatment for other organ failure!
