I am obviously not the worst case of CFS since I am enduring physical activities at all, but being able to play football/soccer 3 times a week for me is one of the few social and enjoyable aspects I have left in my life. Therefore there is no lack of motivation or willpower to proceed with this.

I am curious though if there is any explanation, why do I sweat such incredible amounts more than anybody else under physical activity? I used to sweat before I had CFS also of course, but believe me, there is a huge difference. I suspect it may have something to do with either more toxins to get rid of, or increased heat production. Possibly also because of some chemical imbalance in the way the cells create/burn energy.

good question, and the same what everyone else would ask... I play for 45 min or more, but im mostly just walking around after 15 min. I don't know who told you that you "can't" play football when you have CFS, but perhaps I shouldn't? Keep in mind I "was" a very fit person before I got CFS, but obviously that has changed although having CFS is NOT the same as being unfit. The reason why I choose to play, is because it is one a decreasing amount of joys I have, and I love the game. After playing, I feel devastated, but I can't just sit home contstantly.

I have a home job, and I choose my own hours, so that helps me a lot in staying on top of it. I'm sure there are many who have much more critical CFS conditions than me.

Just for the record, when talking about "football", I mean the European game, which is called "soccer" in the US.

Hello suncat mate, I really can understand raidens response to the football (which IS the right name for it - american 'football' doesn't use nearly enough of the feet to justify the name lol) as a lot of us get exhausted just watching it. For one who has no social interaction energy at all once a days work has been completed, it feels great to hear of one who can still enjoy the beautiful game. Sadly my only joy left in life once the g/f gave up on me and total alcohol intollerance is the crafty fag now and then (sorry smoke/cigarette for the americans among us) It does my heart good to hear you're blessed in that way. Good on you mate!

Now - to answer your origional question - yes, i also have found i sweat like a glass blowers a**e at the slightest exertion. i Think it is to be expected and just keep the lynx to hand afterwards (i even keep one in the car)

You take good care mate and may this terrible affliction of ours never stop you from playing. God Bless mate Tree cool

Hi suncat,

I don't even have to exert myself greatly to sweat like someone turned on a faucet from my head. I have never found anyone that has that happen. I can just do the dishes and I am completely drenched. I have to change clothes 2 to 3 times a day when I do what little house work I am able to do. I also have firbromyalgia plus a multitude of other medical problems. But the sweating I have had no answer for. Maybe I was looking at the wrong medical condition to explain it. Thank you for the question. And just a note I hope you keep playing football as long as possible. From a person that can barely do the laundry, you need to keep what you can as long as you can. Keep playing!

Good to know there are other "sweaters" out there =) Thanks for the encouraging feedback - I guess there isn't always much to gain from trying to find an explanation for all the effects ...

There you go suncat - theres a whole community of us inexplicable perspirers. I came to realise a while ago that to spend our time trying to find the explinations and causes, stop us from using our oh so precious energies doing things that make our limited lives worth living.
Having just been unable to get of bed for an entire day - i know all too well that our reserves are finite and we must use it enriching our lives rather than seeking something which may never be found - if it is meant to be, the answers will find us.
take care chaps. Tree cool

Oops, One non sweater here. I do not start sweating in a sauna until a half hour has gone by.

I have chronic fatigue and fibro and have worked my way up to two hours of swimming per day. I did this without being on a special diet, finding the root cause of my illnesses and following any protocol. I just started slow and kept at it.
