Sweating around neck and forehead with little exertion or none at all

I was searching and came across THIS website. There was a lot of comments on sweating with fibro but I can't find them now. This is something that has just happened in this last year.

I have suffered with this. On a good day when I have felt well enough to do a small bit of housework, I find myself sweating profusely on my head and neck. My face goes bright red and my hair is soaking underneath. This happens to me on even just a minimum effort. At first I put it down to the tablets I was taking but during my 10 years of suffering I tried going drug free for 18 months following a more natural approach, to no avail it still happened. I am now back on completely different meds and the sweats are still there. I have always suffered badly with my menstrural cycle, I don't know whether other sufferers have, even now I have had an ablation, I wonder if the sweats are due partly to this. X

Wandered with the restless leg syndrome do people's legs and feet swell up?

Thank goodness I am not the only one as my legs to my feet look like tree trunks. Is this a myth or does drinking tonic water help with the restless leg syndrome?

I have not heard of that. I must admit though occasionally I have a day off the meds and drink a lot of gin and tonic ! gives me a solid nights sleep but have to stay in bed all the next day !!!!! Lol. Maybe worth a try though.

My knees really balloon up too as well as my wrists and fingers xx

I totally can relate with you there. My whole body from my lower back down is agony all down. My knee caps are painful but that doesn't help after I broke my kneecap and ligaments 12 years ago after blacking out on a trampoline! Ouch

Ouch indeed ! I feel your pain been in bed the last five days myself. Wish someone would find that painkiller that would actually work x

Know that feeling if it wasn't for my friend who is like my big sis who lives with me and takes care of me and does all the main housework. She drags me out everyday. I would be lost without her kindness. She has helped me go to appointments too.

I have been sweating for several years now, the doctors said it was the menopause,and have put me on hrt, but after 5 months sweats have got worse, going back to doctors in 4 weeks!

My dr put me on hrt because of the sweats about 10 years ago. I took them for about 2 years seemed to get worse. Then I saw a locum Dr who told me with my FM and the high blood pressure tablets I should never have been prescribed them so stopped it. I am too going back to my dr as a new one has started at my practice. I find I only seem to get a bit further when you can manage to see a new gp who is trying too look keen and will actually take the time to read your notes !!! I will let you know how I get on x

I am 35 and I sweat every time I walk away from the fan. My face has started turning red across my cheeks and nose and burning like crazy. Everyone else in the house in comfy and I feel like it's 100°!

Due to going through my menopause I put it down to that and the weather. I have had sleepless nights due to the restless legs and the fact that my legs and feet are burning up. Today is really bad I am sweating all over and in constant throbbing pain and feeling really emotional.

Hi , I have had heavy sweating around my neck and above my ears for the last 7years and have to wear my hair up day and night I also have to wash my pillow often . I go to the gym every day and have to wear a sports towel around my neck but just lately I have been spraying deodorant on my neck and it works

The sweating and then going cold is part of FB. So is swollen ankles feet, knees hands fingers etc. The reason why I found out I had FB is because I thought I was starting the menopause because of similar symptoms I thought it was my fault I was just getting old. Depression too.
