Excessively hot and sweaty?

Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone else has suffered from extreme sweating? It’s gross but I get so hot during the day all of my clothes feels drenched by the time I get into work. I went to the gym it’s a friend and before we were even working out my underarms were soaked. I’ve heard of Botox to help sweating but that probably isn’t ideal for someone with MS. Any one have any advice?

hi rena

i told my neuro that it felt like my thermostat was on the blink.

he said “yes that’s ms”.

with me, it’s the change in temperature.

i get so overwhelmingly hot that i think i’ll never feel cool again.

then 2 minutes later i’m shivering and freezing.

ask your gp about excessive sweating.

also ask your ms nurse.

it could be a reaction to a medication you are on.

Hi Carole,

I know exactly what you mean as I go from being extremely hot and bothered to feeling all cold and shivery within minutes and when I asked about it I was told that it was my bodies thermostat not working properly which was due to my MS.

Just something else we have to deal with :frowning:
