Hi, Lorrie74,

I haven't ever heard of hot flushes or night sweats being caused by CMT. Best of luck with the medication - hope it will help.

I've not seen hot flushes as a CMT symptom . I'm 66 and I've not experienced them.

I argree with the previous replies, I've never heard of a link between CMT and hot sweats before. CMT can have a diverse range of symptoms, but they are all related to the effects of poor neural conduction and I'm not sure how hot sweats could be attributed to that. Unfortunatedly a lot of GPs have little understanding of CMT and often either misdiagnose CMT as something else, or attribute other totally un-related problems to the CMT. I hope you get this resolved.

I've never heard of hot sweats with CMT either, can you see another GP at your practice? Or I'd ask him/her to explain more, Horsham Mac is right, few GP's know about CMT cos its so rare.
