Excessive Sweating in Fibromyalgia


What Triggers Heavy Sweating in Fibromyalgia

There are many factors that can trigger excessive sweating and these include the following:

  • Anxiety, which can also be an overlapping condition
  • Autonomic nervous system dysfunction
  • Sensitivity to heat
  • High level of norepinephrine, which can be a side effect of antidepressants

Of all these, the only thing that is preventable is the side effect of norepinephrine, but if the drug is doing more good than harm, then stopping the use of this medication may not be a good option. On a good note, there are medications out there that can help to effectively control sweating, so you may want to bring this up to your doctor.
