    Default Sweats

    I was curious if anybody else has severe sweats with their WG? I can be sitting still and all of a sudden my head just be soaked and its even worse if I'm trying to do stuff. They just recently upped my steroid cause they are pretty sure I'm in a flare. Go back to Dr Wednesday.

    Sweats - especially night sweats - are usually an indicator that a flare is underway. Hope your doc catches it early so you don't get too sick.

    I wonder if might also happen from the high dosages of perd meds we sometimes take. I know it was a problem for me in my early stages of treatment. Some times they had to change the bedding as well as my pajamas as they were soaked from night sweats.

    I wish it was just at night. I was sitting at my son's basketball game and my head just felt soaked. It's embarrassing people just look at you like you have a third head. My aunt informed me I was to young for the change lol. I tried to explain it was probably my meds but she didn't get it.

    I am sorry that you are having those sweating episodes, I have them too. I was dx'd in 2010 still on 13mg of preds and still breakout into a sweat and I agree, it's so embarrassing in public. I really don't get a good answer as to why I do this, from my docs. I also have people look at me strange, offer me water and think I'm ready to pass out I hope that you receive treatment that will make you feel better soon. All the best to you.

    Thanks everybody for the comments. Makes me feel not so lonely. Went to dr today and she gave me more antibiotics. Said she wished they would get it together cause she hates putting me on more cause one of these days they won't work anymore. Also my ana was almost 13000. I'm guessing that is way high.

    I don't know that it necessarily indicates a flare. I've never noticed that connection. But, sweats? Yes indeed! And, like you said, almost any amount of excursion and you really sweat. That has been the case for me for the past 5 years.

    I'm basically in remission but I have constant night sweats. Very annoying They've been pretty much constant since I was diagnosed in 2010.
