    Default Profuse sweating


    So I know with lupus you can get night sweats, which I do have, but do other people sweat more in general? I know I've commented on this before but it's getting to the point where I'm truly embarrassed by it. It's mainly my face, head/hair, and back. I mean my hair just gets soaked when I exert any kind of energy, big or small, when I get frustrated or nervous. Think it's from the oxycodone?

    I'm worried the stress of flying to Arizona with our baby has stirred a flare up and my body felt like it got hit by a semi truck this morning. My hands and feet were swollen this morning... Back and spine are killing me... And I broke out in a rash this morning. Now that I'm typing all this I should probably call my rheum tomorrow? Or should I just ride it out and see how it goes? I'm not sure if I should call if/when I flare or if its just part of the process.

    Thanks guys!

    ialso have the same problem.
    when ever i do anything physical or even mental, i sweat.
    for me it is worst on my head.
    especially behind the ears and on my neck.

    i found magnesium helps.
    i take a tablet in the morning.
    powder is good for fast acting boosts.

    hope this helps.
    it will not stop it, but does help a little.
