Does anyone else have a issue with sweating? I have central air and I have it set so it's cold and everyone else is freezing and Im still hot and sweating. Take a cold shower and get out and start sweating as Im drying off. Driving me nuts. Been like this for a few weeks now and it's not my medication.
Yes I do i get a lot of hot flash type feelings. I work as a pastry chef and the kitchen is usually in upper 80's and I seem to be DYING and everyone else is just like oh its warm.. no its hot and im melting!
I know how you feel. I feel like I am burning up from the inside out. I can feel the cool air on my skin but it does me no good cause I am so hot inside. It's a fevery fluish type thing with me. I feel hot and I feel like crap alot. I hate it.
Thought I was the only one.....almost feel relieved to know that I'm not. Lol. If I go shopping I take an extra pair of clothes underclothes and all Bath cloth with powder just to freshen up for the next store...it's horrible. For this reason I will be glad to see Fall..
Yup, nothing like sweating your makeup off as you're trying to put it on... I've been blaiming Savella for months, even before summer hit... I never used to sweat & now I can stink so bad, yuck!
Anyone else on Savella with this issue?
Tori, a neighbor I meet recently has fibro as well (only person I know irl that has it) and she's on savella and she sweats too. Im not on it. I have always had a issue of being hot easily but nothing like its been lately. This sweating is getting out of control lol. I pick my clothes based on sweating lol. Pick the coolest.
Savella I think is the only reason i sweat so bad, but it's the only side effect I really notice. I'm usually always cold so atleast my husband hasn't gotten irritated this summer over me turning fans off or shutting windows lol
Yes, I understand the Sweating,as for me I just Drip Sweat. It happens 3-5 times each day. I look as though I have just steped out of a shower, it ruins any makeup I put on, & if I have curled my hair it turns into a mess, thats stuck to my scalp. In general **The Sweat Episodes** cause me to feel very nerveous an inside feeling & just a sick feeling in general.They take away any enegry that I might have, & I just feel misserable durring & after.
I go sit down with some ice water, & a neck wrap around that I keep in the freezer, ( I made it from using beads that swell up when wet,,,,,placed inside a strip of materail long enough that I can tie it so it will not slip off) & turn my fan on, & sit at my computer until the sweat attack, stops running down my face.
Or take a cool shower. Your right, everyone in my house tells me its to cold.
I have learned to say, Put a sweater or jacket on, or use one of my throw blankets, as I can't take any of my clothes off, as I wear a tank top year round & my underwear..... If someone comes to see us I put on thin shorts.
I do several crafts when I am up to doing them, as I have several other health problems, Low Blood Oxygen Level, & ssleep with Oxygen each nite,Fibro etc......
So as you can guess I am mostly home bound. I try not to go out in summer or if the temprature is above 80 degrees (Except 2Xs per month for grocerys or a Dr. Appt. Just parking as close to a store as I can & walking to it, will cause a *Sweat Attack*to come on. It takes at least 20 minutes to get it stoped.
You are not alone with this, if you would like to talk more, just email me.
Take Care, BrokenWing

My gosh the dripping sweat is what I have. I was waiting for my kids school to get out and felt the sweat dripping down my back and front. Gross. I can take a cool shower and be sweating. Its awful. I wanna see a endocrinologist and see why it's happening. Well if thered be a answer.
The dripping wet sweating happens to me multiple times a day....feels like my whole head is trapped in an oven. I asked the doc if there was anything I could do about it and he smiled sadly and said, "Nope. Get a fan." I already have fans all over my air conditioned house and just ordered another small fan to carry in my purse when I leave the house. I also freeze everyone in the house by keeping the A/C on 69-70° in the summer...expensive but I can't stand it otherwise. And I am the queen of tank tops year round. It's nice to know I'm not alone in these personal heat wave attacks.
Sounds like me,,,Tank Tops even in winter A/C or window's open even in winter. This summer was the absolute worst heat, with the drought, as we live in the mid west.
lets keep in touch, & see if *THIS* get better of worse.
Thank You, for emailing. Oh the neck ice colars are great to have especially if you must go out. Marilyn>>> 1Brokenwing
YES!! The severe sweating has gotten out of hand and now I don't go in public unless I have to. It's not hormonal hot flashes. My areas of dripping sweat is from my head and torso area with the head being the worst then neck/breast area then entire back....all will just drip sweat and completely soak my shirt. I must always carry a hand towel to wipe the sweat rolling down my face into my eyes and dry the dripping sweat from my hair. THANKFULLY I do not have odor issues with the sweat or else I'd NEVER leave my home. Showers no matter how cold the water is only seems to activate the sweat glands even more. Upon getting out of the shower I can't get dressed for at least 20 minutes or else my shirt would look like I've been sprayed with the water hose. This summer has been horrible.
My pain management doc tells me that it's just another symptom of Fibro. I was diagnosed with Fibro in 2002 and the sweating has only been a major problem the last few years...sadly it seems as each year passes it just gets worse and worse.
