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!

  • over the last 6 month she has increasingly had fits of rage the most recent lasting for over 10 hours including paranoia, 2 suicide attempt . she attacked her husband cutting him on the face with car keys because her sister in law hugged him who was there with her own husband her brother to help clam her down which no one could do, the police had to be called. the police after releasing her recommended she go to the hospital and receive consulting which she refused.
    even after all that hours later she text him saying ,she was resigning from her job ,he can have the kids ,he can keep everything the house the cars everything ,she was leaving town and he will never see her again.
    i know this woman well enough to know that she is a dedicate mother and she would never just give up her house or the car that's paid for let alone ABANDON HER CHILDREN because she was having problems with her husband a man i've known my whole life my brother!
    no way does this behavior make any sense, i've never seen or heard of anything like this .
    this makes no sense ,so i asked myself what changed in her life ,she got RA about 1 year ago ,6 months ago started HUMIRA after using something else ,plus prednisone, and another autoimmune med.
    this is the only thing that makes sense so i went online ,looked side effect of HUMIRA , and BAM now her fits of rage and depression paranoia NOW IT ALL ADD'S UP
    SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE ABOUT THIS that way she was out of control she might had killed her entire family, if you have trouble believing this then i guess u just have to be there,
    i'm still playing that explosion of anger and rage in my head and still can't believe it and i was there
    people out there report anything that even suggest a side effects

  • Heat over 65 degrees, any type of activity, house cleaning, walking. etc. In a hurry, stress. This is so embarrassing. My hair becomes wet, sweat drips from my face and neck. People think I am nuts or coming off of drugs. has limited my activities due to embarrassment or can't stay dry enough to fix my hair. I have stopped wearing makeup all together as it just runs down my face. My Dr. will not listen to me. I think she believes I may "glisten" a little. I need help. Please!!!

    Hello: I work for one neuro-oncologist by doing research, and become interested in investigating a "casual" relationship between severe head Perspiration with brain tumor. This is because one recent patient presented the same complaint to us and was found to have brain tumor. This Perspiration symptom, over 1 year, disappears after tumor was surgically removed.

    I am not saying that you may have brain lesion, better do some further investigation include brain MRI. Some of the symptoms you mentioned could indicate some brain problem. Are you live in US? you can contact me if you like.

    I am not practicing physician, but if you like to see my supervisor, neuro-oncologist, in Houston, I can arrange.

    Thank you. Greg
