    Hi, toddle off and see your GP and get him/her to check your thyroid levels, thyroid problems are not uncommon amongst ladies of a certain age, are easily treatable and cause excessive sweating, you really can't go on like this, let us know how you get on.

    yes, it really is time to chat to your Doc, Susan. You have no life, staying at home all the time!

    I had a hysterectomy 6 weeks ago, and sweats have come on rapidly. Luckily I am outside walking dogs for my job, and am dressed in shorts and a vest top. So not so bad. But you need some help.

    let us know how you get on. xx

      Just saw something on tv about 'superfoods' and a woman said that kefir reduced her crohns disease problems considerably.

      You might have to make your own.  Buy some 'seeds' from a health store, mix it with some sort of milk, let it sit on bench over night, drain and press through a fine sieve and you have a very strong probiotic yoghurt.  Reuse the seeds (sort of look like small bits of cauliflower after use) and start again.  I have used it for helicobacter pylori problems.  It was very effective.  And I find it yummy.

      I had to stop using it 13 days before a test for HP as it suppresses the HP so much.

    Susan, change your hrt to a bio-identical one, e.g. with oestrodiol.

      Susan, I could only give a quick response the other day but now I would like to expand on it.

      I am shocked (but not surprised) that drs still prescribe Premarin.  It is one of the worst and troublesome hrt to use.  It was deemed bad more than 25 years ago, before I started using hrt.  Still am at age 64, never going off it.

      It should be a criminal offence to prescribe this stuff made from horse's pee.  It is bad for you, insist on a bio-identical one made from oestrodiol.  Either patches twice a week, or daily gel rub.  Make sure you get the matrix one which slows down the absorption and you are not hit with a dose from the patch all in one go.

      If drs are still prescribing Premarin in the UK, no wonder hrt has such a bad rep there.
