Hello all,
 
Recently I've been breaking out in cold sweats despite having Rhynaud's.  When getting ready to start the day (after showering & while dressing) I always break out in a cold sweat --- sometimes to the point that I have to change clothes.  So I leave the house wearing light clothing & end up freezing when the sweat calms down.  Any ideas on what could be causing this?  (It seems weird having sweat pooring off my back while my toes & fingers are white.)  ... my Rhumy just shrugged her shoulders at this one ... redface   Oh yes, I'm 29 so there's no chance of the 'change of life' yet.

Hi Jenny,
 
Don't rule out perimenopause just because you're 29.  The "change" can happen at any age.  I'm dealing with the possibility of that right now actually. I'm 34.  It's called POF (premature ovarian failure).  Quite common in people with autoimmune diseases.  Anyway, if you've had your female hormones checked and everything comes back fine, just keep writing down your symptoms etc, and get those hormones checked again.  Are you having any troubles with your periods?
 
Cold sweats are relatively common with lupus and fibro.  Just another one of those weird, hard to diagnose things.  Could be your thyroid too.  Don't let your rheumy shrug this off.  Get your family doctor to run some tests if you need to.

Ginny,

Thanks for your suggestions. Recently, I went off birth control pills since it was interfering with my Lupus. So far, no problems with the periods. I'll ask my family do to check out the pre-metapause & throid. Thanks again for your suggestions! :)

Hi Jenny . . . I do wake up all sweaty when I am very weak, run a fever, etc. A fever can make you feel chilled as well. Lupus does cause fevers or low temp in lots of us . . . make sure your doctor knows you are having the sweats, as this info is helpful to him/her.

Blessings!

Hi Jenny, count me in hun. People are always looking at me like I'm weird because my face and hair get soaking wet. I can be in a room with 50 people and be the only one sweating. I know some meds can cause you to sweat. You if you havn't already you might check out what the side effects are on the ones you take.

Hi Jenny,
  I'm a sweater too and it always hits a the worse time....so embarrassing! I never know when this will happen. I hope this gets better for you soon. Keep us updated and take care.
