Carol (4 weeks ago):

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!

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • Understandably many of these medications/conditions can cause sweating, but I am suffering from generalized sweating upper body chest and head more than under arms or hands or feet. Not localized. Does the androjel if applied to areas of the chest have a 'pore plugging' effect? I feel a film on my skin ~24 hours after application of androjel. When applied to other areas of body, abdomen, the sweating is more severe on chest and shoulders. Thyroid is under control, free testosterone is low normal, Vyvanse is morning only. Tramadol is 50mg qam and prn in late day not more that 3 tablets per day. Fluoxetine is 60mg qam. Not sure if I should consult my endocrinologist or dermatologis for this sweating issue? Is it drug (probably) or something else that is not easily diagnosed because of the drugs that are commonly associated with heavy sweating?
    I am a medical professional. Not common man. I have understanding of neuro chemical process and feedback in the body. What questions should be asked so as to not have serious conditions overlooked by obvious issues that might mask.

  • I have been taking methotrexate 10 mg (one injection a week) since 2002. I was then under Metoject (Methotrexate) 10 mg and then 7.5 mg until February 2013 when I had mouth sores. I was told I had mouth cancer in April 2014 and has been operated mid May at the Pitie Salpetriere hospital in Paris.
