    For me the night sweats happened with WG and sweating during the day with pred. . Yes, it was really embaressing.
    A tactic that I used was to carry changes of shirts with me all the time and just keep changing shirts as needed.
    I still carry spare shirts in my car. It should get better when you can decrease your prednisone.

    This is me too. Pretty much gone once I was off the pred finally.

    I've gotten sweats mainly at night when having flares, or originally while sick before dx and on no meds. Once in awhile, though, during the day, which I guess could be from the pred, but just not as extreme as what some have mentioned. Not to where I have to bring extra clothes anywhere, or beads of sweat running down my face, but just to the point of being a bit uncomfortable. Actually, for me, less problematic than menopause hot flashes were. Everyone is different.

    I have mini sweats at times however when I try to do something requiring some exertion, I'm dripping. Off all meds and still!

    Actually, Dale, the whole thread has been about sweats! Unless I'm totally confused. But there are only 2 pages, and seashells started the thread with a post about Sweats, which was misclassified under Tracheal Stenosis! So, no, you didn't do anything. We can talk about stenosis, but you might just want to start a new thread or pick up on one that really was about that!

    I would wake up in a bed soaked to the mat and have to throw it all in the wash and sleep on the sofa in shorts. It would happen mostly as I was sleeping. I still find now (being really close to formal remission) I get worm when I sleep after a harder day. It is a lot less intense now, for a bit i was almost convinced I was going through menopause at 20! This was not a problem be for wg presented.

    If you google the symptoms of menopause, they are virtually the same of WG

    How lucky am I to have turned 50 and be going through both of these conditions

    Gotta love the sweats - NOT !!!!

    Wow, Michelle. I can't imagine it. I'm so glad I went through menopause well before contracting WG. That I know of, anyway.... I know everyone is different, but for me, the menopause sweats were worse, and to have Wegs on top of that, well, .... just , wow. I hope your menopause is a short one.

    Thanks Anne,

    Actually apart from the sweats it's not bad.

    I was just amazed that most of the signs are exactly the same as our symptoms.

    Hey, here's a thought, maybe I don't even have Wegener's and it's been menopause all of these years - wishful thinking
