Avatar n tn I have been Type 1 diabetic for 45 years, I have had night sweats, for many years some times so wet that we have had to strip the bed and move into the spare room, My wife tells me that the wetness don’t smell like sweat in fact it is odourless, I have no smell at all, lost that years ago, the "sweats" as we call them are a mystery to all and some time two nights in a row then nothing for a month or so.
Avatar n tn Took Zoloft for almost 2 years. All I did was sweat, and I mean dripping wet from the neck up, all day and all night. It was awful. Thought it was menopause but it wasn't. Soon as I stopped the medication the sweating stopped. Then prior to Zoloft I had a wonderful experience with Prozac. Had hives the size of half dollars all over my body. Throat almost closed up. Very severe reaction. Took over a week for the hives to go away.
Avatar n tn I am 58 and started with hot flashes at 47. My periods stopped at 51 or 52 and I'm still having them and night sweats too. In fact they are gettiung worse again. At least 5 times a day. I've never been on HRT and have to watch how much soy I eat because I am hypothyroid and have a family history of breast cancer. Really getting tired of this.
Avatar f tn My biggest motivation is having a healthy baby. That's what is getting me through it. But I broke down last night and started sobbing. I don't even want to eat anymore. And of course now that I can't eat the food I want to, I'm getting invited to things that have to deal with the kinds of food I'm not allowed to have. So I just make up reasons that I can't go. Only 7 1/2 weeks to go though. Anyone else going throug this as well?
Avatar n tn Get a GTT + insulin levels - find out if you have IGT, IFG, type 2 diabetes and/or insulin resistance, or even an very early type 1. Also get complete blood work, cortisol, hormones, etc - they may be overlooking something.
Avatar n tn What are the symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes? I have a child who is extremely tired and thirsty all the time. Should I have him checked for diabetes?
541196 tn?1293556536 Hello, Before I was diagnosed with my prolactin producing pituitary tumor, hasimotos, diabetes and high blood pressure (just to name a few) I was experiencing middle of the night nausea, very similar to morning sickness. After a few weeks of treatment with Dostinex for the tumor my prolactin levels went back to normal and my middle of the night nausea stopped. It has since resumed and it wakes me up... often I even incorporate how I feel into my dreams before I wake up.

Avatar n tn at least from what I've heard and read. As for the night sweats, patches, etc.. I've heard that patches is a symptom of diabetes. As is itching, dry skin, frequent urination, and extreme hunger. Do you have any of those symptoms? Just go to your family doctor to make sure! And they'll do a couple blood tests so you don't have to worry anymore. It seems like you're in good health so you may not even have it! What exactly do they mean when they said 'onset' diabetes. Borderline?
Avatar n tn Wendy, Concern and caution is always a good thing when it comes to diabetes. I've had diabetes for almost 15 years (since I was 13) and have had a number of lows over the years, including at night. Although I have developed a mild amount of hypoglycemic unawareness in the last few years, I used to have a pretty strong reaction when my blood sugar would suddenly drop while I slept. This is my personal experience, but the body can be it's own monitoring device.
Avatar f tn Try not to self diagnose and know that only 5% of people get type 1 diabetes which makes the odds favorable that he doesn't have it. Take him to the doctor for proper testing and if he does not, I'd cut down on dietary sugar.
Avatar f tn Beginning to dread going to bed as doesn’t feel relaxing and restful. Slept well however and didn’t lie awake in night (probably as slept so badly previous night. This morning on the whole feel better chest pain gone but new thing left leg: back of thigh feels ‘stiff’ with crampy pain like when you have done a lot of exercise. Vibrating sensations in balls of feet. Fasciculations down side of right neck as I sit writing this and in calves. Strange feelings in ?
Avatar n tn Yet I have night sweats, where I wake up and am soaked wet, and have hot flashes, depression, and low sex drive. The Doctor put my on Synthyroid to help me loose weight (my thyroid levels were in the safe range but were closer to the hyperthyroid range) When starting the thyroid meds, my mental clarity improved, and I felt like 1 million bucks, but I continued to gain weight at a rapid rate, even when the dose was increased.
Avatar n tn They sent us home that night with antibiotics and said it was a virus. Since then, yes since then.. he has had a fever on and off. A week has not gone by without developing a fever in between the range of 100-105. Many times, he has no other sympton AT ALL. Now, it has been 7 weeks with recurring HIGH ( 101-104) FEVER. Every time we take him to the doctor, they say it is justa virus and to let it pass. I cannot take this "virus thing" as the answer anymore. Is it just me?
Avatar dr m tn Sleep apnea is a very common condition that if left untreated, can cause anything from depression, anxiety, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, heart attack or stroke. It’s estimated that up to 1/4 of all men and 1/10 of all women may have at least some degree of sleep apnea. The frightening statistic is that about 90% of women with sleep apnea are not diagnosed. Instead they are being treated for the complications of untreated sleep apnea, rather than the cause itself.
Avatar m tn I've had the recurring fever and night sweats for a few months now though not so bad August I had severe chest pains and neck pains NHS 24 said to go to A&E. ECG OK no MI enzymes tested so heart is probably OK I managed to get a printout of them last week (he missed a page) and there were a few test results that said ABNORMAL. Lower Upper 14-Mar-08 22-Aug-08 Ferritin Serum Ferritin 20.0 300.0 90.
Avatar n tn Known family history includes skin/prostate cancers, osteoporosis, hypothyroidism and Type 1 Diabetes [an aunt and my younger sister who was diagnosed at age 29]. Personally, I have bi-polar disorder 1 but otherwise have been healthy. Other than my medicine, I have been clean and sober for over a year. I do have an appointment with my doctor on March 6th. I can't go an earlier b/c I have to wait for my Medicare to kick in on March 1st. Thank you for any help!

315318 tn?1353255400 another night without the sweats! and yet another post says sweats need an INCREASED dose, not a reduced one like mine, from 100 to 75. anandbarti thinks this the way to go.
Avatar f tn blurred vision, dizziness, fatigue, headache, night sweats, abdominal pain on the left side and some nausea, nosebleeds, numbness in feet, weightloss (50 -60 lbs in 7 mos), Joint and bone pain, weakness, Type 2 diabetes well controlled, lumps that come and go in my armpits, and leg and foot cramps. I had a referral to rheumatologist for the joint and muscle pain. She assessed that I had no arthritis or autoimmune issues. I have no infections known of. The Drs.
Avatar m tn However type 1 Diabetes has nothing to do with weight, that would be type 2. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that they now believe requires one to have a) A genetic marker for it and b) contract some sort of illness or infection, such as bronchitis, that triggers the disease. It is known as juvenile diabetes but I was diagnosed at 24. If he his eating a lot and always hungry and drinking a lot but always thirsty on top of going to the bathroom way too often it's probably diabetes.
Avatar f tn Treat 'em all for 6 mos, and you have 50 years of tx. Now treat the 50 failures for 1 year and that's another 50 years, for a total of 100 years. Alt 2: Treat the whole lot for 1 year from the get go, yielding 100 years of tx. Note that any SVR rate over 50% for the 6 mos tx, ends up with Alt 1 producing fewer total tx months than Alt 2. Also note that even at a 50% SVR rate, Alt 1 would probably be overall a more effective aproach.
Avatar f tn (always always cold-today 27 degrees in the sun with sweats and sweatshirt and slippers and still shivering) lots of word finding problems uncontrollable perspiration except i am not at all hot but the water runs off of me especially when i am tense. run out of breath from the smallest of things(even talking - maybe i should just shutup!) my back is quite painful most days but I have scoliosis as well and will be 47 in a few weeks so not surprising really.
Avatar m tn I have had cycle like symptoms with bad joint/spreading pain, fatigue, night sweats, acne, cysts on face and neck. I started with the joint pain going to physical therapists and they kept telling me I need to work out. But the issues were on my left hip, left leg, left heal. Since then, they moved to my hand, neck, jaw and eye. I began with my ob looking at the estrogen/progesterone and Thyroid. Nothing showed abnormal except for a low T3 which got me to an Endo doc.
Avatar n tn Pulsations in visual field that doc says are probably silent migraines. Nightsweats, usually 1 a night...but sometimes 2 or 3. Episodes often last for a week to a week and a half. Finger tips wrinkle up (like they have been in water) between meals. Then, when I eat, my finger tips, to the first nuckle down, turn bright red and fill back out like normal. Other people have noticed that I am having some memory problems. Very sensitive to heat and cold.

Hopefully this article can help you answer questions and dismiss many of the myths surrounding this highly published, highly marketed topic. The term Bioidentical Hormones is not a medical term, it is a marketing term used to imply an exact copy of the hormones produced in the body.
