I have tried so many things...I've not taken HRT because of high blood pressure on the pill years ago.
Last week I had to change my clothes 9 times on one day Average 5 - 7 times a day.
I should say the sweating is worse when I'm cold!!! Or after exertion or when I'm anxious. Tends to be worse at the beginning of the day after breakfast and a warm drink.
I'm not diagnosed with a thyroid problem but I do have Fibro. It's hard for GPs to know what's Fibro and what's menopause. Throw in possible anti-depressant side-effects and you can see how difficult it is. I have been on low dose Paroxetine for years for anxiety and one GP suggested it might be side-effects. So the last GP I saw put me on a different anti-depressant which I attempted twice previously but it just made me constipated. However this GP suggested I tried it again with a laxative which has helped.
But I'm thinking it may be side-effects to any anti-depressant as I started this one last Friday and the sweats are just as bad. Don't know how long to give the anti-depressants, but would expect them to have worked by now.
I'm at a loss as to what to do. Feeling cold with wringing clothes is making my life a misery
