I'm in limbo, dont know if i have MS or not... I read somewhere that people with MS dont sweat and they dont get gout.... I sweat and get gout a couple times a year..  Do you sweat? do you get gout?

1hunter,
 
You may want to try MS refugees and MS world for more info.  Both of those are quite active.

1hunter,

Not sure if you're still here....but the doctor's say I have MS, and it is VERY HARD FOR ME TO SWEAT!!! I've even been in the sauna quite a bit...and I have to take ginger and niacin supplements just to help me sweat!!

Actually it seems difficult for my body in any form of "elimination".

I was diagnosed in December.  My house you can hang meat in.  I sweat so bad it's chris farley sweating.  They made me go get my hormones checked.  Totally fine.  I firmly believe it's the ms.

I am very sensitive to heat & sweat quite a bit.  Drives me crazy but I have never had gout.  I like Healingwell forum as well, it is very user friendly.  hugs, Denise

1hunter: Hope you are still lingering. :) I was dx'd with MS going on 4 yrs ago, I live in Tx and gosh do I sweat!! ugh... I haven't heard of the "no sweat, no gout" theory but I guess this wonderful disease treats everyone so differently anything is possible.. I hope you find the support you are in need of on HealingWell as I have never found more caring, compassionate people on any other site. :) Blessings!!

Hi Mamana monster?
 
It looks like the sweating theory is loosing ground, but mabe not the gout. I have had no symptoms in over a year now, but it really bugs me what is/was wrong with me. My  Family Dr. tested me for Celiac "just to check" and the blood test came back positive so he wants me to see a Gastro. Dr.  and get a biopsopy to confirm. My Dr. is very nice but a little out dated and couldnt tell me if Celiac could have been the cause of my symptoms. I would rather have Celiac than MS, but hopfully i dont have either. 
 
Blessings back!!

Hi Mamana monster?
Yep, Mamana Monster! lol! A little game my son and I used to play when he was little, chased him around and told him "Mamana Monster" was gonna get him...the Mamana part came from him being so little he kinda stumbled over mama when he was excited... I also have Ulcerative Colitis so sending you to a GI is a good thing, better safe than sorry. It is amazing the complications that can be caused by Celiac disease..not really familiar with all of them but have read a bit about it while researching. I too hope that you don't have MS but if you do, please know that there is support for you and you can learn to live, productively with anything! Keep us updated!! turn

My body takes sweating to another level,unfortunately. Dripping. At least about five times a day I develop a feeling like I am going to become ill. Sometimes I feel so bad I have to sit down and put my head down. Shortly after, I feel like my body is on fire. I begin to sweat profusely. My face begins to flush. Anyone that witnesses this episode is aware of what is going on just by my appearance They say that my skin is glistening, my clothing drenched. My internist, gastroenterologist, neurologist, and my gyno all agree that this is neurological.
I asked all of them to help. None of them would do so. Hope this helps somewhat with the sweating issues. It certainly impacts negatively in my quality of life.
Oh well- Sweating,seizures,and shots everyday. Doesn't sound great, but the list of great things I have going on in my life is much longer!
Believe it or not- Last month my daughter got married and now she and my son-in-law are expecting a baby!

Don't know for sure if I have MS but it is one of the terrific diseases that the drs are saying that is a real possiblities and I sweat like CRAZY!. I have a tough time finding a deoderant that helps at all. I have hang out a lot in the Lupus forum and I have to say that Well healing site is so much better than any that I have found out there. I am not sure about the gout. not a 100% sure what it is. I do have terrible pains in my toes most of the time but not sure if it is gout. I have noticed though that Lupus and MS definately treats everyone differently. Each of us have similarities and differences. I wish you luck.

I have been wondering if I have ms also. And omg at the sweating problem I have!!! ESP around my face and neck it's the worse.
I have fibromyalgia but my dad has a half sister that has ms. My face turns red almost instantly. I think I'm always hot and sweating. I freeze my poor husband and Kids at home
I have been dx with fibromyalgia, depression, barrettes disease, fatty liver, inflammatory arthritis, insomnia, osteoarthritis in my knees, hypothyroidism, I just want some energy back!!

Hello, I'm fairly new here. I was diagnosed with RRMS in 2003. I sweat, but nothing out of the ordinary. I am very sensitive to the heat, it can make me feel very ill if I get too over-heated. Oh, I don't have gout.
