welcome hunderful to the boards.
i have absolutely no idea. this one is new to me. have you asked your doctor about it?
sorry i have not an answer for you. just compassion. hope that helps.
What medications are you on? This may be contributing to the fact. I too get very hot and sweaty on my neck and along the back of my scalp. Many times I end up taking off my shirt in the middle of the night as I am so sweaty and warm.
I wonder if meds affects this? I am on effexor, ritalin, flexeril, and trazadone.
Recently, I have been experiencing the same exact thing. Its weird that someone else has suffered from this as well. I have not spoken to my docs about it, hoping that it will just go away as quickly as it started...good luck and blessings to you!
