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.
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.
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!)
