    Dx. with MS in 2004. This past spring I started sweating and cont. to increase over the summer. Drops of sweat just roll down my face & off my chin. My chest gets soaked, and my upper arms leave a wet area when placed on a table or a chair. Any treatment besides a surgery I read about. I also read a herbal pill called Pherical might help.

      I would blame the Meds. You may have started to get used to them and sweat eases up. But everybody seems to have different experiences.

    same here, I sweat a retarded amount.  not when I'm cold but if I get even a little bit hot, look out.  oh, side note, speaking of heat, I'm really sensitive to heat (fatigue/weakness) and when I get a little fever it's as good as sitting in a parking lot in August.  I hit 100.4 the other day and had to break out my cane which I haven't used in 10 years.  I guess it makes sense, but it's freakin weird to be jogging (sort of) one hour and slumping over a cane the next.  Anyone else get their butt kicked by a fever?

      I'm so relieved to hear that I am not the only one with these "issues". I drip sweat with the slightest movement (like laundry, in air conditioning). It doesn't happen in cold weather either. It is to the point that I am wet from the skin out. I love being outside, but being out only a short time leaves me with "deep" fatigue from the sweating. I too feel like I have been knocked off my feet with even one degree of fever. No one considers it fever but me. My temp is usually a bit below normal, so when it rises, I feel every degree. I was diagnosed with MS 20 years ago. I have only had the sweating problem the last year or so. READ MORE

    I was diagnosed in 2000, age 50.  First exacerbation at age 30 (3 weeks after son was born.  I'm now 60 and I can't remember a day with soaking hair and body even in winter and doing nothing.  First thought it was menapause - but it wasn't. Must be the ms.  Go on the internet.  There are cooling jackets.  Expensive - but if you are crafty you could probably make one. BCK

      2/6/11   I could have written the statement above.  I am the same age, diagnosed in the same year and the sweat just pours off me, I mean to the point of my clothes having to be changed.  I have the cooling vest but never thought of using it in the dead of winter.  Guess I better get it out and anything else I rcvd from the MS Society.  Silly me.  I guess I am not alone.  Thanks  SS in Florida

      Just a thought.  When my kids were babies and had a fever in the middle of the night, I'd get up, give them Tylenol and a popsicle.  Try the popsicle to cool down you core temp.  Good luck.  Barbara

    I have had back surgery as well as plate and screws in my neck-sufferer from intermittent back pain always. But in April suffered an episode of increased back pain, lost feeling in my feet and fell- I now suspect it may be MS. I have pain heaviness, tingling, distorted vision, hand tremors and now profuse sweating has begun.. or actually worsened over the past year! it was just face and chest for no reason- now has progressed to face chest back and backs of knees. due to my history of back problems and herniations I have just begun to realize MS may be the cause of my current symptoms. And HELLO what part of i couldnt feel my feet and fell did my family doc and neuro surgeon think could have possibly been normal!!?? I am a nurse and worked full time until the episode of pain in April and I think everyone has overlooked sx of MS.

      I know where you coming from, I have scoliosis, spinal stenosis and a bone island resting on / if not fused to my lower lumbar vertebrea, numbness/tingling in arms, hands and legs, something going on near my thoracic vertebrea as well, a cavernous hemangeoma.  I have seen 2 orthos and 1 neuro all three less than sympathetic, suspect MS as well, but nobody will listen to me, very frustrating.  A physical therapist "asked" me one day if I thought I had MS, I'm thinking he was telling me more than asking.  Experienced night sweats and leg spasms that would wake me from a sound sleep long before pain management.

    I haven't been diagnosed completely with MS. Though I strongly feel I have it.

    I read all the MS info. I can get and I have all 10 symptoms and more.

    For years I've been 'plagued' with excessive sweating. I've been to doctors and no one takes it too serious. They tell me my hormones are messed up because I had excessive chemo years ago. I'm a breast cancer survivor.

    I drip and drip all over my head, neck, chest and lower stomach areas.

    I need two fans and the AC cranked as low as my husband will permit. And yet I still sweat.

    If I'm active or inactive, I sweat.

    My clothes are wet.

    I hate it and it interfers with my social life.  I carry water and a handkerchief with me all the time.

    I am miserable part of everyday and night.

    HELP.............I'M GOING TO SEE A NEUROLOGIST SOON.
