    Hi trisha, mine started with hot flushes like i was going through the change, but my hormone levels where normal, the hot flushes have stopped now but i get excessive sweating a lot. even just from light house work, i'll be sweating like iv'e done a gym work out... then within an hour i could be sitting with a hot water bottle cos i'm freezing.. unfortunately broken body thermostats are common with fibro.

    sad 

    you're not alone.

    It's 3.56am and no sleep here yet.. tsk tsk...  I go for weeks with insomnia then go days with longer sleeps but not refreshing sleeps and have to have one or two sleep through the day also..  Or on occasions I just flak out within 5 mins and crash for 3  or more hours...regardless of where I am.  

    A broken thermostate with Fibro is really common to.  I have really struggled with this since my MVA..  it can also be very painful...

    Yes yes yes.

    It's awful sweating away in winter or summer. It's embarrassing as it runs down my face. It stops me wearing what I want. Yes insomnia too even when completely tired but that could be CFS too.

    Saw a brill dr who helped me deal with insomnia. It changed my life.

    If u want message me back and I'll go into more details. X

    Hi Trisha

    Yes, I have been feeling constantly hot all the time even during the winter months.  I was like a radiator on 24/7.  My kids loved it as when they felt cold they used to borrow my hands to warm up.  I was checked if I was going through my menopause, but was told not at the moment.  I have been wearing a magnet which helps the heat issues during menopause and I can honestly say it has reduced my body it.  This product you can purchase from Boots and is called Ladycare Magnet.  It seems to be working for me and I have been wearing it daily since July 2015.  It can take upto three months to norice any difference.  Sleep is still an issue but I am getting there slowing with the help of my herbal remedies.

    Take care wink xx

      Well thank you, I'll certainly try anything. My life at the moment is all about fabromyalgia and I need my mind distracted, I also take a lot of chest infections, but doctor says not related, however nothing wrong with it until the fabromyalgia xxxxx

    I am so sorry you and the folk who have replied are going throiugh this, but I am equally so over joyed to know I am not alone!  Ihave had these awful episodes of sweating head and being boiling when everyone else is cold, then feeling cold when everyone is warm!  Initially put it down to hormones though now through the menopause and relatively stable (husband may disagree! Joke!) can never place what sparks these episodes- as I can be resting or active, stressed or reallychilled, it is literally like my thermostat has broken!  It can be so embarrasing as I have fine thinnish hair and can look like just got out the shower, and so disheartening when I am out with husband or family or friends and done my best to look my best then have sweat running down my faceand flat wet hair within seconds!  Any suggestions how folk cope greatly appreciated! I also go through times of sleeplessness, but have learned to live with this now, I get up, make a drink and read or watch some pre recorded tv, or even iron or do a few quiet chores!

      i don't make any plans or efforts to go out as I know I'm just going home again, my friends can be a bit distant because they cannot sympathise unless you've got it.

    Do you not feel as if that's all you talk and think about? It's so overwhelming that it fills up your thoughts, health and you worry about symptoms such, new symptoms. I also feel my doctor and consultant don't take it very seriously or helpfully because I don't think they know enough about it. I have had a few choice words with a few doctors and consultants after maybe another non productive day.
