Does anybody ever get cold clammy sweats? 
 
I have not figured out yet if it is from perimenopause, my medications or if it is just another fibro thing. 
 
I am just curious is anybody else experiencing this.

Hi Karen

hmmm...are you taking a new med or supplement?  The only time I get cold sweats is when my sugar is low.  I am wondering if you have been checked for diabetes lately?  one of my sisters suffers from low sugars, but they tell her she is borderline diabetic.  She would just get overcome with those sweats, and feeling dizzy.  Thats when she went to the doc and that's what they found.  Hypoglycemic (sp)?

Hope someone comes along with more knowledge

 Forgot to add, the next time you get like that, have a glass of juice or something sweet and see if it helps relieve you within a couple of minutes (5 - 5 min) if that helps, it is a good indication that your sugar is a bit lower than normal.

Gentle hugs, Diane

I still get hot flashes, don't know if it is still hormonal or part of fibro. I break out in a cold sweat when blood sugar drops, hypoglycemia. But there is a lot more to it than just cold sweat, shakiness and lightheadedness. I also break out in cold sweat when I have the horrible stomach cramps from IBS and feel like I'm going to pass out.
 
How often is it happening Karen???

Karen,
 
I agree with Marlee & Diane-sometimes when I get low blood sugar, I get that cold, sweaty, clammy feeling.  But, I also get it with these new "migraines" I've been having.  Yesterday, they got so bad I dragged myself to Urgent Care-only to have them tell me that they think I was having migraines (Oh yeah, and they weren't giving me any narcotics LOL).  DUH! eyes   But, at least I got something for the nausea, and I'm finally feeling better after 3 days.
 
I think my original point was that I also get that cold, sweaty feeling with really bad pain.  But, since we all seem to suffer from really bad pain, I'd make sure your blood sugar isn't too low.  This sounds like a classic case of hypoglycemia (you spelled it right, Diane). tongue

FINALLY dx'd on 06/13/08
Vicodin, Neurontin, Ibuprofen for pain-which doesn't help, BTW
Zoloft & methadone (NOT for pain) for sanity-which doesn't help, BTW
Klonopin for anxiety (Guess what?  Doesn't help!)

I agree with all of the above, Karen.  Are you eating properly?  I know you are trying to lose a little weiight but you are now more active than you have been in a while so your body needs more fuel.  When the clamminess happens, try eating some fresh fruit and see if that helps you.

I never thought of blood sugar, though you would think that I would have, it has been happening ever since I have had the fibro. I figured it would be medication or something. I worry more about my blood sugars being high. But next time I will try some orange juice or eat something. That way I should be more able to tell.

I know that my blood sugars aren't as good as they use to be, often I don't eat as regularly as I should. I am just not hungry. But my hb is pretty good at keeping me eating, maybe too good with gaining weight and all. But I really think that is more due to inactivity than anything. Haven't been walking like I should be. Or I should say as much as I would like to be.

Thanks you guys for the suggestions.

Luv and hugs, Karen...

I was having a big problem with blood sugar dropping after giving up meat and doc said it was from too little protein. I keep protein bars on hand for days when I don't eat much protein that are high in protein and low in fat and carbs.

I like the protien bars. I could live on them actually. I use to be a bigger fan of meat than I am now. I like the granola bars too. Cranberry and ginger is really good. Though I try to eat a balanced diet. When I first got fibromyalgia I remember not wanting to eat meat at all. I wonder why. Maybe because my physical activity dropped to almost zero. I went through a lot of changes when I first got fibro. And I still am. It sure does change one's life.

hugs, Karen

I find that i get cold sweats quite a bit..... and its not always from low blood sugar.. but most of the time it is... i always have a hand full of almonds near by.. since they are protein.. and not as high in sugar and sodium as some of the granola and protein bars

That is a good idea, I heard almonds are really good for us. I don't really think that my cold sweats are related to low blood sugar. I think it is either a fibro thing or medication. But none the less, I am trying to eat to keep my blood sugars even, without spiking and dropping.

I love almonds, seems like there is a supplement in them, maybe magnesium, I can't remember. But they are good for us.

Hugs, Karen...

I get cold sweats a lot. I don't know why. I have had them before I started my Lyrica. It could be a Fibro thing. I would have to do more research on it. But, you are not alone. I have been tested for just about everything, so, for me, it's not diabetes.

When I was first diagnosed with fibro, I took Oxycontin for pain. I had cold sweats constantly. I asked the doc about it and he told me it was just nerves! I would be shivering with goosebumps and would be perspiring so much that I could wring the sweat out of my hair. I thought it was the Oxy.
 
Several years now since I quit the Oxycontin, I still get cold sweats, though not nearly as often but they happen when I get nauseous. Why? I haven't asked the docs that I have now, I'm afraid they would tell me something stupid and then I'd have to search for new doctors and start the whole process again. I don't think I have enough energy left for that now. Especially when you have to go through all the tests again and on top of that convince them that you are not trying to get pain medication from them. If I had my way, I'd have a doctor who suffered from fibro treat me, maybe then they would understand or even pretend to care. confused
