  • Hi I do suffer with excess sweating too especialy around my throat and back of neck and face, but i have been looking into this a little as it gets me down as like you it can get extreme and my clothes can be soaked with sweat. Certain foods are linked with causing excess sweating and weight gain.

    but its worth doing some research as well as seeing your gp as there may be an underlying problem although its worth ruleing this out

  • hi poppy i will look into it further and i have an app. with Dr on Friday and will ask. i have stoped eating wheat as this didnt help me with ibs and left me bloted and i dont eat alot of dairy either. thanks for your help its so good to know there is others we can talk to soft hugs xx

  • Hi, welcome to the site, I hope you find it as informative and supportive as i have!

    As to your post, I think most of us have or have had the sweating and over-heating. I certainly have.

    I tell people that my thermostat is broken as I'm either cold and shivering or sweltering!! My partner complains that it's like hugging either and iceberg or a radiator!

    Quite often I can be hot and sweating around my body and head and my hands and feet will be like ice....well strange!!!

    But don't worry, you're not alone :)

    take care of you xx

  • thanks for your answer its so good to know i'm not on my own. it realy helps to be able to talk to others who are going through thr same things. gentle hugs xx

  • Temperature dysregulation is a symptom of Fibro - a result of the dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system (which controls everything you don't think about) with Fibro.

  • hi lindsey , it was'nt untill i found this site and read the blogs, questions and answers that fribo was to do with the nervous symptom, i was lead to believe it was muscular and tissues around them. this site is a god send its so good to know i'm not on my own thank you so much. fibro hugs xx

  • I know what you mean, I find it very embarrasing too I think some of it is due to the pills I take and my age grrr just something else to deal with X
