    Feeling extreme sweat , burning skin and hot flash

    Hi
    I was diagnosed with PPMS 21 years ago
    Since few months a go I have been feeling very strange and uncomfortable
    As soon as I wake up in the morning gradually start experiencing hot flash, burning skin and worst is feel sweat all over my body (mostly feeling sweat in lower part of my body)

    Strange that is just sensation of sweat , I feel my pant is wet from sweat but not true

    End of the day feel cold sweat !!!

    Itís really annoying and impacts my mood and mobility
    I discussed it with my neurologist he tells me burning skin is common in MS but he has no explanation for other symptoms

    Has anybody experienced these symptoms?
    are you taking any medication or aware of any remedies that might help

    Iím really puzzled and badly impacted by these symptoms

    ‏إany lead would be highly appreciated

    Hi brave-

    Your symptoms sound really annoying! If you are a female within a certain age, I would look to menopause as the culprit for hot flashes and sweating. This is very common!

    As to the cold sweating, I have no suggestion, but you may want to address all these issues with your pcp (especially if you are not a female). It could be, or not, an underlying condition that might be looked into.

    Some medication might also be the cause of your symptoms. And yes, the burning sensation is definitely an MS symptom.

    Hope you can find some answers and solutions to your problems.
    Take good care.

      Hi Brave,

      Sorry you are experiencing these symptoms. Unfortunately, not much help.

      For me, sweating is actual sweating and hormonal, with some food triggers.

      Did experience a period where my one foot would feel wet, but never was. It just went away on its own after a few months.

      As for the burning, upper back and shoulders for me. I had it with a relapse once. Now, fatigue related. It is a tell tale symptom that I have been pushing too hard.

      Hope these disappear for you.

        Hello brave ~

        I experience the feeling of wetness on my legs occasionally, and they're totally dry!

        It's never associated with feeling sweaty, though.

        I don't have hot flushing, except from eating spicy hot foods.

        Rarely, I will get a burning sensation on feet or legs.

        As Seasha mentioned, your PCP may be able to help figure out if the cause of some symptoms may be due to something else, other than MS.

        Take Care

          Thank you very much to all of you for sharing your experiences

          Yes I am female and have been in menopause for seven years

          Havenít had any menopause related symptoms till now

          I talked to my PCP he also said Ēcould be MSĒ prescribed gabapentin for me but taking gabapentin Makes me drowsy next day
          Regardless I took it for a week didnít see any difference in my symptoms

          Unfortunately I do not have right sensation in my palm so can not judge if I really sweat or not but have asked others to check my clothing , they find my clothing fine , not sweaty

            I have hot flushes mostly at night and when I first get up in the AM. I thought it was menopause but this has lasted for over 10 years and the night sweats are getting worse. I was dx 7 years ago. I do take medicine for high blood pressure but believe the night sweats and hot flushes are caused by MS.

            I stopped my DMD 2 years ago and have been doing better since then. I have not seen my neurologist since then either.
