Re: Armour and sweating
I have experienced TERRIBLE sweating problems since going on Armour 3 years ago. However, I also went on narcotics for pain at the same time, and cannot tell if one, or both, or the meds is causing the problem. Since I went for 14 years undiagnosed, I didn't sweat for all those years, which I LIKED! Saved a bundle on anti-perpirant! Now, the sweating is so bad that I am literally soaked to the skin just from cooking dinner. My hair, clothes, everything will be soaked by the time I finish doing dishes, or cooking dinner, or walking around the block. It is miserable, and totally unacceptable. Before I began taking Armour and the narcotics, I would sweat only after walking on a treadmill for 20-30 minutes at a very brisk pace.
My doctor, who also takes Armour, told me that it causes him to sweat a lot, too. So, I know it is partly the Armour. But, I believe that the narcotics I have been taking exacerbate the problem, because in the last 4 weeks, I have gradually cut my dose of the narcotic, and the Armour, in half, and it seems to have decreased the sweating by about 50%! If I could get it to decrease a little more, then I can live with "normal" sweating.
