From this study (2 days ago):
In the past 3 months I've had numerous medication changes. I never had problems with blood pressure, cholesterol or sugar. I go for blood tests every three months to see if my Synthroid needs to be adjusted and the lab does a battery of other tests also.
Last year my blood sugar was 84 and cholesterol 181.
In April, my blood sugar was 123 and cholesterol 215.
Today, the results of my labs were blood sugar 124 and cholesterol 252!! I've been eating healthier than I ever have, salads, fresh veggies, fresh fruit, no white foods, low carbs, oats and other whole grains. I have not been eating sugar, I don't eat beef or pork, I've been eating salmon, and chicken or turkey if I eat meat with my meals, most of the time I don't, I get protein from beans or quinoa.
I walk for exercise and clean houses. I don't drink or smoke. I am totally clueless as to why the test results were so bad when I was doing everything right. I also take herbs. Cinnamon, Bitter Melon and Fenugreek to lower sugar, also drinking water that Okra has been soaking in. For cholesterol, I take Cholestoff, Krill Oil (highest dosage,) and Red Yeast Rice.
From this study (3 days 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.

half-ass read this website, but if you're looking for cause of hypnagogic hallucinations, I had mild ones with vyvanse, when I was falling asleep I'd hear chatter, like if I was hearing people talking in a cafeteria, or sometimes, instead of that falling sensation you get when you're falling asleep but not quite? I started hearing a large bang instead of the vertigo sensation. I didn't like vyvanse, I find weed is better at unfucking my head by fucking it from a different angle.
