9 comments on “The Joys of Excessive Sweating

  1. Mine did if like crazy after I was first diagnosed with GP. I did the same as you, tried everything. Including an order of the arm pit pads that stick to the inside of the clothing. I would rather hear the paper towel, than deal with that. Slowly it has tapered off. That was also the time of the bad night sweats. With cross my fingers only happens about once a month. My Dr thought it was hypothyroidism. with a test later, nope not it and the subject was dropped and an prescription antiperspirant was ordered (did nothing). I’m with you, save the money. Hopefully it will taper off. By the way, glad to hear you took time off. When one goes MIA in the GP community we all wonder.

  2. This is definitely an interesting blog because I had a few night sweats starting last year and I never had them before, but I have had GP for years. First I thought that I was perimenopausal because my periods seemed different for awhile, but now they are back to normal (however, I will be talking to my doctor about tests next month). Now I’m not sure what to think, but you never know if it’s GP related!
    Also, I started chiropractic treatment last May so I thought that had something to do with the night sweats because my body (and spine) was undergoing such treatment because that was the only change in my usual routine. So, now I’m just baffled! However, I think that the chiro treatments have really helped my GP and there really isn’t any research online on a correlation between the two!
    The only OTC deodorant I’ve ever liked is Mitchum Powder Fresh Clear Gel For Women Anti-Perspirant. I find it to be the strongest and it really works all day! I hope something will work for you two soon!

  3. @ Jen, Thanks. Mine has tapered off, lucky. I just now seen to get hot (face and nose turn red) when I eat and when I dip yes (hot). A few times a day out of the blue I get super hot and need to take layers off. But sweating is minimal. I am 36 and just 1 yr into GP dx. BTW I just LOVE these blogs!

  4. @Melissa, I’m glad that things are better! I’m also 36 and was diagnosed with IGP in 2011, but I started getting sick pretty regularly in 2004 (then and until 2005 was the worse). Tons of doctors with incorrect diagnoses (I was told by two doctors to have my gallbladder out when there was nothing wrong with it!) and a little bit of remission time made me still wonder what was wrong with me until I saw a specialist where I now live that ordered me to have a gastric emptying scan… I wish all of us would have been spared the agony of this… the uncertainty is just so frustrating!

  5. Thanks for all of the tips & support! GP is definitely a tricky one to try to figure out. It is so hard to know what is related to GP and what is not, but either way it stinks. (figuratively & literally!)

  6. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d
    figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links
    or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My blog goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we
    could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!

    • Hi Pedro!
      Thank you for checking out my blog. I can assure you that I am not your cousin because I am female. 🙂
      I’m glad that you feel the blog is an accurate reflection of what we go through!
