Unexplained and excessive sweating is a common problem with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Excessive sweating is one of those bizarre symptoms that rarely make it onto the symptoms list.
That’s understandable since it’s not as severe as the core issues; Fibro pain and Fibro fatigue. That said, sweating can have a major impact on sufferers’ lives.
Several factors could be responsible for our sweating, either on their own or in combination, and include:
- Autonomic nervous system dysfunction;
- Heat sensitivity due to high adrenal levels;
- High norepinephrine levels, as a side effect of antidepressants; and
- Anxiety, as a symptom or overlapping condition.
Solving for the Sweats:
One of the most effective ways to reduce excessive sweating is to reduce adrenal stress … essentially, cooling the bodies engine down. Fibro sufferers have high adrenal levels. It’s the bodies way of helping sufferers fight through persistent chronic pain. High adrenal levels is akin to a cars engine stuck is in third gear hurtling down the highway at 100km/hr … put simply, the engine is persistently over-revving and HOT!
There are effective ways to reduce adrenal stress, including:
- Reducing Fibro pain using PEA and Magnesium as Glycinate;
- Restoring sleep with Melatonin in ‘Troche’ form; and
- Reducing oxidative stress with NAD+ and CoQ10 (our
Advanced Chronic Fatigue Support).
Get a treatment plan that’s personalised and right for you! There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to managing Fibro. Symptoms vary from person to person. The best treatment outcomes are achieved where treatment protocols are developed for you, the individual. This means developing a protocol that is based on you, your spectrum of symptoms and how sever each symptom is. Critically, sufferers need to be monitored over the first few months of embarking on their Fibro protocol.
