    sweating can't live

    like this or do i have to. i had all the tests done. neurologist started me on glycopyrrolate 1mg x 4 a day. he said it all about adrenaline it did zero, went to another neurologist was put on Propantheline it did nothing. i start on a patch tomorrow and not expecting any miracle.

    the sweat excuress (i cant spell) like this. i'm in bed being turned to dress mild sweating MIGHT start, most times not at all. the big problem is the profuse sweating when i'm sitting up in my chair. if i dont recline at zero gravity prufuse sweating starts.

    will i have to live live this? is it possible they overlooked something in my pelvic/groin ct scan?
    should i seek the wizard oz. the last neurologist told me to see his parter "he knows more" this come from the Gaylord Miracle Hospital.
    Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

    I did the sweating thing a month after injury into three years post-injury. It was hell. I feel for you.

    According to your profile, you were injured in 1980. When did this sweating you describe start?

    You mention neurology but have you considered an endocrinologist? To look at hormonal influence?

    That is the only specialist I have not seen. My thyroid checked out OK according to test done then I was hospitalized. But I've read where one test is not enough.

    Other than here is my story. I wrote Dr Wise 2 months ago, no reply. I understand he busy.

    Hi Dr. Wise
    I'm hoping you can give me some insight on what I'm going though. I am a c-5 complete post 37 years. Let me start here. 1/6/2016 I went to bed and got out of it 5/7/2017. During that 16 month time in bed I was never raised more than 20 degrees. By the time EMS got me to the hospital I was covered head to toe with candida.

    Entered nursing home 5/27/17 got up in chair reclined 45 degree mild sweating normal bp. My normal has always ran low 100/80 - 90/60. Next step was getting up in my power tilt/recline chair. My bp bottom out countless times. I couldn't respond fast enough to recline and would pass-out.

    I was diagnosed with postural hypertension. I was prescribed .5 lisinopril and .1 Florinef. Everything went back to normal within a week. bp 130/70. Except the sweating, in the hoyer lift the longer it took to get from bed to chair the heavier the sweating got. 12/21 got back home from nursing home. January went to cardiologist discontinued Floinef, bp now to high. 180/100 upped isinopril to 10mg.pb now fluctuates, but acceptable levels. At this point around March 1st when I got in my chair 10-15 minutes later PROFUSE sweating, Endured this on and off for a month, went to hospital for 3 days CT scan the works, nothing found. I went to my neurologist 2 weeks ago and was told this all has to do with adrenaline.

    Well I was put on glycopyrrolate 1mg x 4 aday and I have got no relief. Here's also something I noticed. *1 It seems like the days I take a shower the sweating is profuse and non stop so I got go to back to bed before I go insane.Is it possible something is being over looked? *2 One more odd thing. If any part of my body (well mostly from the waist down) is scrubbed, pinched etc. profuse sweating starts.It's like AD x1000, but normal bp and no spasms.

    *1 unrelated
    *2 Note as of today July 30 these symptom are milder.
    Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

    I used to sweat alot if I needed to weight shift or my roho cushion was over inflated.I also noticed my sweats stopped when I got my Sp tube.

    My advice to you is to see someone who is familiar with sci- which it sounds like you can. This can be an autonomic nervous system issue or a endocrine issue.

    SUCCESS No more profuse sweating. The Scopolamine patches (Transderm Scop) helped 90%.It's stuck in back of my ear. Only mild beads when voiding. I got my life back!
