RE: Re: [IP] Sweating Citation, Autonomic Neuropathy
That article is absolutely FASCINATING. I know that I suffer from
autonomic neuropathy because I have been diagnosed with gastroparesis.
So the sweating, or hyperhidrosis, would go right along with that. What
I did not know, however, is that I can develop a tolerance to the
medication I take for the gastroparesis, Reglan, and that it should be
periodically withdrawn to reestablish effectiveness.
I do subscribe to Medscape (I love it) and have tried doing searches for
sweating and looked up all the medications I take for sweating and fever
as possible side effects. Had it not been for this article, I never
would have thought to search for hyperhidrosis and diabetes. Nor would
I have thought to ask my Endocrinologist about these symptoms. I would
never have guessed that sweating would be related.
Thank you to you, and to everyone else who has participated in this
discussion to lead to a path of final understanding of this frustrating
problem. The only unfortunate thing is that there doesn't seem to be a
real concrete treatment for sweating, other than a couple of medications
which may exacerbate the gastroparesis because they can cause delayed
