Does anyone have sweating attacks
I was diagnosed in Dec/08 with MS, My symptons were fatigue, weakness in my arms, and pain in my arm and shoulder.  Recently I have been having sweating attacks, sometimes when I am doing something, such a cleaning up kitchen or doing absolutly nothing at all. I am on the DMD Avonex and gabentin and altertec. Could the sweating and heat I feel in my body be caused by MS?

I've never had a sweating attack.  When I'm having a flare, my body temperature goes down, to the point that I feel chilled on a hot day.

OMG!  Yes. I feel that way almost constantly.  I sweat profusely from doing almost nothing.  Just getting breakfast.  Getting ready for the day (which doesn't take much:)) I break out in a sweat.  Then when I do exercise I don't sweat excessively.  Just normal I guess.  I know it's not my thyroid.  I am undx, by the way.  Interesting.  I haven't been tracking this, but now maybe I will.  Thanks.  I'm interested in hearing more.  Basically, once the temp hits 73 or 74, I break out in sweat.

Thanks for your feedback. When the the weather is warm and humid, Iam a done noodle, and if I try to do anything like walk, I sweat. But, recently I have been having sweating attacks regardless of the weather, I even wake up at night soaked, Iam 56 and past the menopause thing, so I have been wondering if this could be a ms thing. Also, before I started having the sweats, I would get goosebump flesh, even when it was warm outside, or if I was getting into a warm bath. That has stopped and the sweating has taken it's place. My family doc has run blood tests and I did a 24 urine test to see if it could possible be something with my adrenal gland, but everything was normal. I am seeing my neuro on Fri. and didn't know how to ask him about this.

Well I was just diagnosed with MS about 6 weeks ago.   I am 57 and have been waking up just soaked with sweat.   So I googled it and found this site.  I am not sure if it is MS related or not.  I haven't started treatments yet.  That will be Wednesday.  I did have to leave my job today as a cake decorator because I felt as if I were drunk and spinning.  I came home and slept all day and woke up drenched...AGAIN
