perspiring on one side only
« on: February 15, 2010, 07:11:53 PM »
hi everyone. I never used to prespire at all, then when I was diognosed and put on prednisone I started to perspire on the left side of my body, mostly around the left temple.

Has anyone else had this or heard of this. I did ask my Dr who said he had heard of it and couldnt remember why, he said he would find out but keeps forgetting
thanks in advance

http://www.justanswer.com/questions/1k3aj-what-would-cause-the-body-to-only-sweat-on-the-right-side-when

My conclusion is that it can be caused by a number of things, best to check with doctor!

Bernice, your answer sound like something a doctor would say when they don't have an answer. :D

Bopeep, so you are perspiring on the left side of your body. Sounds like you are all "right" then.  :D

Actually, I don't really sweat much anymore.  I do, however, sweat a little at my hairline, in my hair and in the middle of my back when i'm really overheated.  By the way, I get it with pilocarpine too, after each dose and heaven forbid if I try to increase this med, it makes me light headed, shivering, shaking and sweating (only in those few spots) but very uncomfortable!  I only use deodorant because it gives me a real light scent - can't stand to wear or be around people wearing perfume/cologne -- the fumes really bother me (chemicals of any kind too).
