Sweating

Sweating

Since I have been on Prednisone I have noticed sweating for no reason, and being hot even inside with the air on. Now I am also on Humira. I forgot to ask my Rheumy Monday when I went to she her. Can these meds cause this? Thank you!

Does Anyone Have Hot Flashes With No Fever

Does Anyone Have Hot Flashes With No Fever

I have suddenly started having hot flashes, sweats, then freezing cold. Then the whole process starts over it is bad enough I take my temp but there is no fever. I am not on any RA meds as yet. And I have not been on any hormone therapy. Have already gone completely through menopause and don't have flashes from that anymore. I go and see the Rheumy on Sept 21. Does anyone else have this issue. Thanks in advance for your answers.

Does Anyone Else Have Problems With Body Temperature Being Off? Most Of The Time I Am Freezing Cold!!

Does Anyone Else Have Problems With Body Temperature Being Off? Most Of The Time I Am Freezing Cold!!

I am mostly freezing cold, but then all of a sudden, out of nowhere I’m hit with feeling of being so hot internally for a few minutes, then back to cold. But of course I also have the night sweats. And continual pain. I have RA, fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. Can’t fiugure out what’s causing it.

I told my nurse practitioner about my temp changes and she told me to drink more water. #1 - I'm on fluid restriction and #2 - That answer is not an answer, it's something they say when they don't… read more

Does Anyone Else Experience Heat Intolerance With Their RA?

Does Anyone Else Experience Heat Intolerance With Their RA?

I'm not sure if it's the meds (prednisone and Actemra) or just another one of the things that RA adds to my life. I have lived in south Florida my whole life, so I am definitely used to the heat, but it's getting worse and worse. Yesterday I tried to take a little nature hike, and by 9:00 am I was so hot I had to go home. I am photosensitive so I already have to cover up with hat, spf clothing, sunscreen, sunglasses at all times. Now it doesn't seem like I am going to be able to go outside all… read more

I live in Arkansas and our summers are hot with 100%humidity. So even at 7am when you walk outside it's like your walking into a sauna. But I just had my infusion of Actemra 2 days ago and today when… read more

Sweating And Spasms

Sweating And Spasms

Wondering if anyone experiences profuse sweating from everywhere like I would assume hot flashes would be like. 2nd question muscle spasms, when I turn a certain way using back or trunk muscles I get these painful spasms like a charlie horse in my back or in my side. It happens everytime I move this way and it keeps me from doing whatever it was I was trying to do.

I tried more potassium that's what bananas are good for but that didn't work so it wasn't that. I did talk to my physical therapist and what she told me made sense, the muscles surrounding the joint… read more

Other Symptoms

Other Symptoms

What symptoms do people experience.. After getting on this site, I am starting to realise that a lot of the things I experience are RA and not menopause. The hot sweats I experience, which my doc says is menopause, is not menopause. Same with the fatigue and lack of energy. Perth WA is very hot in summer and its unbearable. I don't think sitting under the air conditioner does me much good either but it makes it bearable.

What other symptoms do others have

A myRAteam Member said:

Joint pain and swelling - fingers, hands, wrists, toes, feet, ankles, with some elbow and knee involvement. Other joints become involved over time. My hips and shoulders are barely giving me issue… read more

Hot Flushes

Hi. I am on the following meds
5mg prednisone
20mg rheumalef
25mg methrotrexate
Plasniquine 200mg
Celebrex 200mg
The hot flushes are unbearable especially after taking the rheumalef and the insomnia. Please I would love some advice. Thank you

A myRAteam Member said:

I have been on Celebrex for a year now with no problems. It was a lifesaver for me I wasn’t able to do anything, helped so much with pain and inflammation. I’m only on 60 mg.
