Hi, I've just been reading posts about sweating. I need someone to define what a cold sweat is as opposed to a normal sweat please. We dont get hot sweat do we? Im burning up regularly day and night yet when I wipe the sweat off the sweat feels cold....does that mean i have cold sweats or hot flushes? Im confused. I;m not menopausal yet. Im hypothyroid with severe vit d deficiency; under control as far as the blood test results go, with the medication. I also use salbutamol, montekeukast for allergies and cetirizine for rhintis. Those last few dont cause me any problems. However I have copd and allergic asthma and have had more emergencies lately; last two years more in last six months with severe anaphylatic type reactions to things I never used to - as well as the bog standard cats, dogs, house dust mites and some medications - seemingly steroids which at the same time are saving my life. Well I post this here because dr says its all down to being hypithyroid which I can believe after reading others thyroid symptoms. But if my blood tests come back within limits how come I'm getting more symptoms now than before I was being treated for it? Anyone else get same thing? Its crazy I'm tempted to be done with medication I literally find it hard to swalliw anyway as my throat is usually swollen up. Can anyone shed any light or share their story?
