Question sweating

Does anyone with Fibro have severe sweating problems? Curious because my mom has it and she sweats so much she has to change her shirt 3 times a day.

Re: sweating

Yes, unfortunately I go through this so summers are really bad for me. My body carries so much heat that I believe I could run around naked and still have a sweat attack. (TT)

Re: sweating

hahaha i cant even count the number of times i have had to change my shirt at work or go home, or even go buy another shirt at tj maxx (bummer). I wonder if that has to do with toxins in your body, and then i wonder if the toxins in your body make the fm because they are poisoning your body. hmm maybe we should all go get colonics.

Re: sweating

Sweating is an autonomic reaction. Autonomic reactions are common in FMS. I had trouble with sweating, shortness of breath and tachycardia (all autonomic reactions). Verapamil, a calcium channel blocker helped tremendously - a beta blocker would also work. Added plus: the Verapamil also helps my raynaud's syndrome.

Re: sweating

When I go outside to do yard work, I end up pouring sweat. I always take a towel outside with me. I know that excessive sweating is also a side effect of some antidepressants, which I take.

Talking Re: sweating

I started sweating profusely just about the time I was diagnosed with FMS (10 years ago). It was very embarrassing and the people I worked with and for criticized me for it. I had to quit work for several reasons relating to FMS about 8 years ago, but have just started working again about 15 hours a week. I love working, but I am still sweating. It can be the middle of winter with snow on the ground, and wind blowing 30 miles an hour, and here I am sweating! The summer is worse, of course, but I live in the Pac. NW--it doesn't get hot very much and very long. I've learned to carry a fold-out fan in my purse as well as a nice handkerchief. (Remember your kindergarten teacher who use to carry her hanky in her cleavage? I thought that was so gross then, but, although I don't carry mine in that place, I really understand now!)
