I get really hot and sweat drips off my face, my arms and face turn red can this be caused by my blood pressure of medication I take?

I get really hot and sweat drips off my face, my arms and face turn red can this be caused by my blood pressure of medication I take?

No: The only med you list for BP is Aldactone and that wouldn't cause it. An overdose of synthroid (thyroxine) could - has your TSH been checked (blood sample). Most likely, it's physiologic (normal response to overheating). Production of perspiration and dilation of blood vessels (red face) is our body's way to dissipate heat and regulate temperature.

Blood Pressure (Definition)

Blood pressure is a measurement of the force placed on the blood vessels and is comprised of the "systolic" pressure (the top number on a blood pressure meter) which is the peak pressure when the heart is pumping, and the "diastolic" pressure (the bottom number on a blood pressure meter) which is the pressure during the resting phase ...Read more

I know that high blood pressure is called the silent killer. Can some people physically feel when they happen to have HBP from time to time? Sweats?

Yes, but uncommonly.: More commonly, the symptoms of high blood pressure (if they occur) include blurry vision, headaches, blood in the urine (urine discoloration), chest discomfort / pressure, throbbing / pounding in the ears. If you have an aneurysm, back pain or other neurologic symptoms may develop. The symptoms may be subtle. The best detection is a blood pressure monitor that you can pick up at any pharmacy.

What causes night sweats? Had blood work done everything is normal but still I wake up almost every night soaked in sweat only using a light blanket

What causes night sweats? Had blood work done everything is normal but still I wake up almost every night soaked in sweat only using a light blanket

See below: Night sweats: there are many potential causes to sweating at night. The term night sweats generally refers to excessive sweating at night related to a hormone imbalance. There is no one answer to explain the origin of sweating at night. Some common causes are: infection, some cancers, several medications, low blood sugars and a host of other less common reasons. Were going to focus in on the hormone imbalance commonly seen in menopause, although by no means limited to menopause. We have seen a common night sweats picture in the men with prostate cancer with elevated estrogen levels. Swelling often starts around your neck. We generally start with saliva testing which allows us to identify what the hormone imbalance actually is and treat accordingly. When we don't start with saliva testing we very often get very good success with progesterone cream in the form of wild yam cream. There are many different preparations of wild yam cream on the market and often the preparation does not have enough progesterone cream to be effective. The above is the simple answer the better answer is to work with a healthcare professional who has experiencing natural hormone therapy.

What could cause borderline enlarged liver and weight loss and night sweats? I do have fatty liver. Been tested for HIV and hep. And all blood work good

Hormones: Welcome back. Had thyroid function tests? Female hormones out of whack? Periods are ok? The fatty liver was presumed to be due to obesity, which is why you went on the reducing diet. Blood work good is reassuring, as was the MRI tests you mentioned in another question. Checked for parasites? Tb?

Hi I have a raised ESR level in my blood count, what could be causing this? I also have night sweats. Thankyou

Multiple reasons: An elevated ESR can be seen in a number of infections or inflammatory conditions. Infections such as pneumonia, urinary tract infections, TB or other infections can all elevate esr. Also rheumatic and autoimmune conditions can also elevate esr. See your physician who may order blood tests and other labs to diagnosis the underlying disease process and recommend appropriate treatment.

I have had night sweats all year. I went for blood & urine work & it all came back great! I'm a female under 30, healthy & active. No fever or pain.

Temperature. ..: In your age doubt menopause, if regular periods. If last test including CBC, TSH normal - unlikely infectious process, but TB test may be good idea - if possible exposure, travel. Etc. Temperature of bedroom may be also cause. Make sure to keep bedroom well ventilated and use light blanket. Keep well hydrated and avoid stimulants and alcohol before bed time. Exercise regularly.

R- side neck pain, decreased appetite, weightloss, drenching night sweats, on/off thyroid swelling dry cough. Clean blood, x-ray, & u/s. Not lymphoma?

R- side neck pain, decreased appetite, weightloss, drenching night sweats, on/off thyroid swelling dry cough. Clean blood, x-ray, & u/s. Not lymphoma?

Many possibilities.: Lymphoma usually isn't painful, but the other symptoms could fit. However, there are a number of other possibilities. The thyroid swelling is suspicious for thyroiditis. If that is ruled out, ct scan of neck, chest, abdomen and pelvis may be helpful, or possibly a pet/ct. Various infections, and autoimmune diseases can cause similar symptoms to malignancies.

I am terrified of blood tests- bonafide phobia, but have been having night sweats. Are there any other ways to test hormone levels without blood work?

I am terrified of blood tests- bonafide phobia, but have been having night sweats. Are there any other ways to test hormone levels without blood work?

Address the phobia: You're an adult. If you give in to a phobia or ask for special consideration because of a fear you realize to be unrealistic, you enslave yourself deeper. Treating phobias is relatively straightforward if you have a good guide. Get a referral from your physician and you will not only be able to do what other adults do, but discover inner resources you probably did not know you had.
