    Can someone tell me if there is something I can take for excessive sweating. I mean I can't even sit outside for more than 5 minutes without having to ring my shirt out. It happens even when I am in a nice airconditioned place. I have been told that people with f/m have a sweating problem any way.
    Also I go to see the Rheumatologist tomorrow. He is going to think I'm crazy asking for sonrthint to curb the wetness problem.
    Thanks for any info

    I have posted about this problem before too.

    It's CRAZY the way I sweat!

    I even go stand outside in the winter, 20 degrees, to eat my oatmeal because if I try to eat at the table, I would be soaked.

    I can't dry my hair after a shower because the sweating keeps it wet!

    I wear spring jackets in the dead of winter.

    I have been told it is a FM thing and it could also be a medicine thing (Effexor for me). I KNOW my thyroid is fine.

    My other option would be an endocrinologist, but I don't have insurance.

    When I'm home relaxing and not wearing a bra, sometimes I have to stick a bounty papertowel under each boob! LOL

    PLEASE ask your rheumy and let me know!

    Lotsa luv,
