Does anyone else get cold sweats? I'm not sure if it's a norco thing (or dilaudid because it happens in the hospital, too), or a CD thing. But it's not at night - it's the middle of the day, at the same time each day. Twice actually, like at 11a and then again at like 4p.
At first I thought it was because I was too hot, so I would turn on the fan, the AC, etc. One time I had the hospital room at 60 degrees and felt freezing, but I was sweating so badly I would soak through my clothes. It's been going on for over a month now.
I found that when it starts, if I bundle up with a heating pad and the fireplace, I actually sweat less but it's still there and it lasts about an hour. It now happens every time I get cold. I freeze and get chills, but I sweat so badly I just soak through my clothes. When it happened in the hospital one night (my IV infiltrated and it took 36 hours to get another one, so I had no pain meds cold turkey after 2 mg IV dilaudid every 3 hours for 8 days), I soaked through three nightgowns and sheets, and my body temperature crashed all the way to 95.7.
I thought it was fever related or something, but I don't have a fever when it happens. If anything, my body temperature gets lower, unless I get all bundled up.
Does anyone else experience this or have any thoughts? Even my legs will be soaked through the clothes. My back and neck, too. And it's not like I'm extremely overweight or anything.
