    Could you possibly have AD? I'm not sure what level that's supposed to stop at, but maybe it's a possibility.

    Good luck finding it though. Cold sweats are the absolute worst! Ya can never tell if you're hot or cold.

    I'm going to vote autonomic dysreflexia too. Do you have a pounding headache, flushed face, when it happens? Or goosebumps? Odd spasms? I get all of the above.

    If it is you need to find the cause.

    yep ~ sounds like Autonomic Dysreflexia
    I've been paralyzed for 25 years , lived with the sweats for 20 yrs until I found out what it was (AD) now I take Cardura® and only get the sweats in the mornings after it wears off ... and my cat likes to sleep on my legs , the preasure triggers dysreflexia, ...

    Yes, weren't you taught about AD when you went through rehab? Highest risk are those with injuries T7 and above, but it is has been reported as low as T10. Get a blood pressure cuff, and take your blood pressure when you are having symptoms. If your blood pressure is elevated more than 30 mm. Hg. above your usual systolic, it should be considered as AD.

    Check your bladder first. 90% of episodes of AD are due to bladder problems, usually overdistention.
