Why do I sweat all the time?
Posted 04 August 2010 - 03:03 PM
I went to two stores today, and in the middle of shopping in each one, I broke out in a sweat. It's embarrassing to be talking with someone with sweat dripping off my hair and face. During the night I become drenched in sweat, and usually have to get up and change pajamas. I sleep with a ceiling fan on high, a small fan blowing on me, and the AC on 70.
I have had this problem for about a year, so it can't be blamed on the weather. In the south we hug a lot, but this sweating thing doesn't make me very huggable!
Is this a characteristic of diabetes, or could something additional be going on? I also take Cymbalta, Concerta (for ADD) and HRT.
Any ideas or comments?

I sweat a lot normally....I always have, but with Celexa, I sweated so much that people thought I was sick. When I went grocery shopping, I'd go really early to beat the heat and crowds.....usually between 2am and 7am.(it's a Wal-Mart and they're open 24/7). I'd take my time shopping, but when I got to the checkout counter, my shirt was completely soaked, I had sweat running off of my arms and dripping off of my face. I had to carry some folded up paper towels in my pockets to wipe the sweat off so I wouldn't drip sweat on the counter.
One thing you didn't mention was your age. Is it possible that you are having hot flashes?
Novolog and Lantus for diabetes.
Welchol for cholesterol and diabetes

I was diagnosed in 2003...
(If at first you don't succeed, give up. The d*mn thing probably wasn't worth it anyway.)

I have been taking Cymbalta for several years, and the sweating has been somewhat of a problem all along. It just seems to have gotten worse over time, and I have been totally miserable with it during the last year. I am 58, and take a hormone (estrace). I am also about 50 lbs. overweight. So I guess the diabetes is just exacerbating the problem. I don't know that I can give up the antidepressants, but maybe my psychiatrist can find an alternative.
