  • Sweating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just to ask a simple question, I plan on asking this this morning to dr. brush but could someone tell me how i can reduce this sweating, i can't do anything without sweating and to top it all off i became allergic to the Niaspan the doc has me on after two months ago, i woke up this morning on fire my body was soooo hot and now i have a rash and swelling from it , needless to say i 'm not taking any more of that stuff and i'm calling doctor Ciccone today

    Shirley,
    I just read your post...did you see your doctor today? Was the sweating from the allergic reaction to the medication? Hope you are doing better...

      My sweating is due to my heart working soooo hard doc said it was very stiff and when i'm walking my body thinks i'm running if that makes any sence I have been sweating now for about 3 years like this i mean to the point within a few minutes my hair is soaked, the allergy was to the Niaspan and he discontinued it and put me on 50 mg of zoccor, i still have the rash from it but i do feel better

        Shirley ,

        Sorry I did not see this thread. I too have the sweating , more pronounced with certain activities. Light sweating with some day to day toils but some days heavier then others. Now , put me in the market and there you will see a drenched rat!! Starts at my head and flows like a waterfall. At the checkout , I am dabbing my face non stop and huffing, puffing away. I have always attributed it to the same as your doc says. My heart fortunately still assimilates to some light activity , but never gets conditioned to events that a normal heart would see as a walk in the park. It is my meter to back off at a certain time or I will unfortunately be consistantly rewarded with having to do penacnce to gain stability back. You know what i mean?

          I also sweat profusly, but never related it to HCM, just thought it was another issue I had! I guess I'm too accepting of all my symptoms & just -I don't know what! I sleep with the ceiling fan on (my sweet husband sleeps in sweats, year round) & always dress in layers-as I strip down where ever I go!
          I feel better about this now-thanx!

              I have always sweated alot and been very uncomfortable in the heat as well. Since I have been on Norpace, it has been so great, I barely sweat at all. The side effects of Norpace are anti-cholinergic which means that you sweat less, have dry mouth, trouble peeing, etc.

              In the last month, as I have adjusted, I barely have the dry mouth, have adjusted to the peeing, and I barely every sweat. It is the only good side effect I have ever had from a medicine!

              When I exercised, I used to be drenched from head to toe. Now, I barely need to wipe my face. My hair stays dry, my palms and my feet are dry.

              When I had my ICD replaced, as my incision is under my arm, I was afraid to wear deoderant for a month or so. When I had the ICD placed this was horrible, but this time it was no problem at all.

              Just thought I would post a positive comment about some HCM related thing.
