I've been having a really annoying problem, and wondered if anyone else has this.  Anytime I do any work, primarily outside, I sweat so profusely, that I have to carry around a hand towel to wipe my face with!  The sweat just runs down my face.  It happened today, and it was only in the high 70's-low 80's.  I've always been a "sweater"...I just realized I said sweater lol  :) anyhow, it just has gotten so much worse!  I've never been like this, even in higher temps.  Do you think it could be my meds? 
Doc just raised my Lyrica to two 50mg. twice daily, and 8 tramadol/day.

I guess it could be the meds.  I've always been a sweater too.  It was 95 degrees yesterday and I sweating so bad it was dripping off my elbows!  I've always assumed it was the Fibro or my Lupus.

Hi!

Sweater??...lol Pretty cute. Anyway, I have never been a sweater...or should I say I don't usually 'glow' much. Men sweat...women 'glow'...lol So I guess we're "glowers". (ok Chutzie, it's late and you need to go to bed..lol) Anyway, I can sweat from any movement even when it's cool. I don't know why but it is frustrating when you carry around a towel to stop the dripping from your hair. Yuckie! Does wonders for the hairdo.

It may be medicine related but I don't think I take anything that you take. If I remember...lmbo...I'll ask my doc on my next appointment, in a couple of weeks, and see what he suggests.

Hugs,

Since I became aware of fms and the effect of the disorder on me, I realized how sweaty I've become! However, I only start sweating if I'm too cool, which makes me chilled and achy. For instance, I live in a dry cold climate. I now have to have my heat on at night even though it's still technically summer, because if I wake up too cool, my head will be sopping wet and my body shivery. When I was on vacation a few weeks ago to humid New England, I was "properly" sweaty, when the humidity was up and the temperature up. Cold night sweats = ick!!

I use to sweat alot when I was gaining my weight fast. As for being outside in 70degree weather I hate it. I sweat even in that low of a temperature.

Thanks everyone...I forgot to mention that I too get the night sweats about three days before my "time of the month". I have a feeling that I'm in the beginning stages of menopause...(I'm 39) Anyhow...thanks for all the replies, and thank you Chutzie, for offerring to ask your Dr. about it! :)

I never used to perspire but I sure do now when doing gardening.  Even my clothes are wet after only about a half an hour of simple gardening.  I will also get night sweats where I'll wake up and be soaked.  Fun, huh?

i never used to sweat.. but since i started the lyrica.. i been sweating very badly i can walk up and down stairs and it looks like i ran a marathon

the pharmacist said that lyrica can cause that.. but it should go away once i get used to it

so maybe its from upping the dose of lyrica

I sweat like crazy. I keep a handkerchief with me for frequent face wiping. It's so embarassing. My understanding is that in persons with fibro, the internal thermostat goes a little haywire, causing either sweating, or shivering, or both!

I'm not much of a "sweater" (maybe I just never exert myself enough devil ), but I have a friend who used to sweat terribly when she was taking SSRI's.  She couldn't even walk from the car to the house on a sunny day without her face becoming damp.  After she stopped taking the meds, she stopped sweating, so for her, there definitely was a connection.

I have the same probelm over here... even when my skin is cold to the touch I will be dripping sweat this is while sitting at my desk working . ( I work from home ) Crazy . it really gets to you . every time I do the smalest thing I really get to just dripping sweat. smhair Its like my Temp gage is broken or somthing.  
 
I am in the process of looking into this a little further... as I think I am also mentaposal. ( sorry spelling is not my thing I guess LOL )
then i thought I saw a connection between pain levels and this .. but not sure yet.
 
there is just so much that comes with This Fibro .. so many symptoms at once.
 
I have personally been in a Real bad Flare for about 2 and a 1/2 months now. all Summer... I can't take the heat at all.. and live in AZ . my husband has to force me out of the house. LOL..
 
its looking like this is part of the Fibro if a lot of us are feeling sweaty ... thoughts ?
 
Take care all .. Spirit ~ yeah

1. This is a symptom of fibro.

2. This is a symptom of menopause.

3. Why do you think ladies used to carry fans? (LOL!)

turn  No doubt Hu . LOL.. thats what we need is a real cool looking Fan...
 
 I would be in for it  LOL , really anything will work.. and I really don't care what I look like doing it .. Fanning myself.
 
I'll be standing in line at the Pharmacy , and grab one of the books or flyers they have sitting around and start faning myself.
 
That's a lot of the prob so many symptoms kinda cross over and could be lots of things. so we end up searching searching , rule this out and that. never ending fight .

OMGosh... I admit it. I have one in my purse right now that is so old it's breaking, and a brand new one I just bought, but it clicks when I use it and the noise makes me self-conscious. I actually use it at the store, church, doctor's office, anywhere I'm extra warm. And if this is caused by the SSRI meds I don't care. I'd rather be sane and sweaty than cool and crazy!

I carry a small folding Asian paper fan - I got a bag of them at Party World as party accessories and now carry one wherever I go.

FROM HARA: If that was the case with the night sweats then I am in deep. I started the night sweats thing in my late 20's and I'm 40 now. hmmmmm

Hi, I'm on Tramadol for pain and it makes me VERY sweaty. I'm not usually a sweater (or glower!), but the Tramadol definitely makes me sweaty.

Out of curosity does any of these meds lower zinc levels. Sometimes low levels lead to excessive sweating.
