Oh what a relief - others suffer too. Read most postings and have noticed a fact that a lot of us also have fibro, COS , arthritis. I too am on 2 anti depressants, wear patch for pain & take 2 dif pain killers, blood pressure meds, antihistamines etc. Like some had a lot of surgery (on my 4th knee replacement) damaged spine etc etc ..... it's interesting that a lot of us have the same extra problems on top of the sweats. I'm 52. I've been moaning to my doctor now for 8/9 years but in the last 6 months got 100% worse sweat wise but it's also causing boil like spots all over my face - oh how fantastic it all make me feel!! Yesterday I saw a different doctor telling her I'm tired of being told part of the course for menopause, but then 12 years ago was told I'm going thro early menopause, tired of being stared at, being taken to one side in shops where they thought I was anxious shop lifting, changing 5 times in a day, looking ugly, and find it so very embarrassing doing whatever I am whilst drips of sweat are falling onto the table/counter/book, Water blocked ears or stinging eyes ... list is endless isnt it. SHE BELIEVED ME! This was such a relevation for me as got tired hearing 'we'll monitor it, will pass, its your meds etc. I cant tell you what a relief it was that someone actually took it seriously. Going for fasting blood tests later today then got 2nd appt with her Thursday (in 2 days); I will mention this site & meds you've all mentioned and can't thank you all enough making me feel a little bit human again knowing it's not 'just me. However I'm sorry you are suffering this horrendous thing, unless you suffer you will never know how we all feel life can't go on like this any more. Won't it be great when we find a cure - save electricity (No extra washing loads of soggy clothes, hankies etc) save money in not having to buy tissues or flannel when out to 'mop up' etc etc but mostly, can feel a little bit better about ourselves and an incy bit confident in going out again socialising.
Thank you everyone, with love n hugs to all sufferers. Will let you know what Doc says on Thurs. Xx
