For the last 8 weeks I have been having terrible night sweats and now I am experiencing an unquenchable thirst and consequentially a dramatic increase in trips to loo! I do have other medical problems including vasculitis, connective tissue disease, raynauds, pituitary cyst, asthma, eczema and lots of allergy's I take 2grams Mycophenolate Mofetil , 8mg prednisolone and I am classed as being steroid defendant, Risodronate, vit D, folic acid, telfast 180, Tramadol SR and paracetamol, Domperidone, Flixonase, and flixotide sorry for the long list.
The night sweats could be due to the vasculitis and connective tissue disease but this is the first time it has been accompanied by the extreme thirst, I also know that my age (49) could be a contributor too but I was told 8 years ago that I was past menopause so unless you can go through it twice!!
I have also been feeling very jittery and having trouble sleeping even though I am exhausted my pulse keeps racing and my acupuncturist has recorded this twice along with a weak pulse.
I am seeing my GP on Monday and just wondered if I needed to ask him to check my thyroid again as I am borderline Hyperthyroid it is normally done annually and was last done in August 2012 also wondered if it could be the start of diabetes as I know it can be caused by the steroid use. Has anyone else had these problems while the disease is stable.
