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!
