Hello everyone, hope someone out there can help me, I have had Pmr for three years now, and still taking all the usual medication, including prednisolone, I suffer with really bad head sweats, it happens about 4 or five times a day, my head sweats so bad, that it runs down my face, and makes my hair very wet, looks like I have just got out of the shower, has anyone out there got any idea why this happens and what I can do about it, as the doctor doesn't seem to know why it's happening ,,,Thank you,,,Jan

Head sweats are often due to low vit D3. Have you had that tested? Hypos are often low on D3, yet we need it to be able to metabolise thyroid hormone...

OK, no problem! :) But low vit D still causes head sweats, whatever groups you're on! lol
