Comments from related studies:
From this study (5 months ago):
If it is warm or humid I have excessive sweating. Feels like my body can't adapt to surrounding temperature
From this study (4 years ago):
I take pain medication for occipital neuralgia, C2 level and C4-5 (fusion) and arthritis (fingers and neck). I have times when I will break out in a cold sweat, get really weak, anxious and am unable to think. I am not sure if this is related to hormones or medications or both.
From this study (5 years ago):
I take with Metoprolo, Amlodipine, crestor,zetia, and Flexeril. I have EXCESSIVE SWEATING, is it because of the combination of medicines?
