      I've read several post on Sweating. I'm not on trmt. have tried it twice. I use the hormone patch so it cant be hot flashes and it is different than haveing hot flashes. It has got to where I'm sweating a lot of the time. Can anyone give me any insight into this and why some of us have it, is it just a side effect of the hep c. Thanks for any info. Regards, Marjorie

      Marjorie, Yep can cause it, but rule out other factors too. Like thyroid. An optimum thryoid (I have read) for women is 1 to 2. Tho tests say up to 6 is good,

        Marjorie,

        Yep can cause it, but rule out other factors too. Like thyroid.

        An optimum thryoid (I have read) for women is 1 to 2. Tho tests say up to 6
        is good, they are finding that for many women, over 2 starts giving
        hypothyroid symptoms.

        About.com has a lot of good info on thyroid.

        I'm no doctor k, this is just what I've read.

        I sweat too, easily and get hot flashes, not so much as I used to before
        treatment and during tx. So hopefully even that is getting better :)

        But I'm still sensitive to heat ick!

          Marjorie....

          I suffer with the heat, constantly drenched in sweat and it has nothing
          to do with my change whcih has been over for years.

          A lot of folks seem to think it's associated with treatment, but that
          isn't the case with me. About 7 years ago I started suffering from heat
          ...I've been on tx for 11 months. Long before tx I'd be drenched in
          sweat all summer long. Even in air conditioning I get hot...unless it's
          truly frigid.

          So I'd be interested in sharing any info you get on this. I think it
          must be associated with either the hep c or the liver damage but have no
          clue.

            Hi All,
            I have a favor to ask. If you live in FL on the
            back of most phone books (well it is there on, St
            Pete, Clearwater ones). There is a group of
            Attorney's, seems like one of their names is
            Mullholland. If you have that could you please send
            me the info on them? Or, even possibly some that
            specialize in Workmens Comp. and take case on
            contingency.
            My former employer is totally ignoring me, and my
            hands (bilateral carpal tunnel), have got where they
            ache and go to sleep so bad that it disturbs my sleep
            and ache constantly and stay numb. They dropped me
            (WC) when the Surgeon refused the surgery because of
            bleeding time. My hands and arms, are getting worse
            as time goes on. The surgery on my first hand was
            refused 11/99 and I figure I better find something out
            before the Statute of Limitations is up.
            Thank You, Connie
            PS: Why I am asking is I am not in FL right now.
            Can't remember the firms full name to find it on the
            Internet either, smile, brain fog sucks.

              Tatezi, I was never sweaty like I am now before treatment. Since I began 15 weeks ago...all I do is sweat. So far, my thyroid numbers are well within normal.

                I sweat the worse in the mornings. I am also sensitive to direct
                sunlight...can't stand it.

                I used to be colder than everyone I know, but now I am by far the hottest.
                I am driving up my electricity bill and freezing my family out of the house.

                Normal TSH (what they measure for hypothyroid) is .5 to 5.5. Mine was always fine until rebetron blew out my thyroid several months ago and it jumped to 110.

                  Normal TSH (what they measure for hypothyroid) is .5 to 5.5. Mine was
                  always fine until rebetron blew out my thyroid several months ago and it
                  jumped to 110. But hypothyroid (underactive) causes you to be cold while
                  hyperthyroid (overactive) causes heat. Go figure....all I know is that
                  up until about 7 years ago I didn't mind the heat at all and now I
                  really suffer from it.

                  Hey, maybe it's age that does it <g> and it has nothing to do with our
                  hep or livers.

                    tat says <<Normal TSH (what they measure for hypothyroid) is .5 to 5.5. >>

                    If you'll read the newer stuff on thyroid, they found that for women esp,
                    anything above a 2 can cause hypothyroid problems. It did with me. I was
                    5.75, my test said normal was 6. As my thyroid slowly lowers after
                    treatment, my symptoms are slowly going away too.

                    Just becuase they say something is "normal" doesn't always mean it's normal
                    for you.

                    So be careful, check things out, find a thyroid specialist if you think it
                    could be that.

                    Sometimes, it's just the hep and some things we have to deal with it the
                    best we can.

                    If the sweats really bother you, see a specialist :)

                      it was just that I was getting older....until folks on the list started
                      talking about experiencing the same thing.

                      It's weird, isn't it? Can't figure out the connection....

                          Pat...

                          If I remember right (and with this brain fog that isn't always the
                          case), the TSH is the hormone the brain produces that takes over when
                          the thyroid isn't doing it's job. I think it's T9 or something they
                          measure for hyperthyroid....at least that's what it is in cats.

                          Now this happened to me some months ago, so research might have made
                          some new findings. It is common for older wimmin to become
                          hypothyroid....not to mention those of us on rebetron. And ofcourse
                          each person is an individual. I think Claudine said when her TSH was 13
                          she could barely move....yet I was just a tad tired with mine at 110.

                          BTW, someone talked about sensitivity to the sun. I remember when I
                          first signed up with Commitment to Care they warned me of sensitivity to
                          the sun. I've not experienced it but it must be common if it's something
                          they warn you about.

                            out! To compensate i increse my fluids..but....yep..only pee more!!!
                            Haha...such fun!! Can't wait for this to end! My TSH has been within normal

                              I think whoever 'decided' this was nuts! Everyone I
                              know who has hypothyroidism seems to be heat
                              sensative! I began to be extremely sensitive to heat
                              several years before I was diagnosed with HCV and
                              interferon kicked my thyroid gland over the edge. I
                              would be drenched in sweat when everone around me was
                              cool and dry. Either heat or activity would start me
                              sweating. And when my thyroid gland did stop
                              functioning while I was on treatment I experienced
                              symptoms of both hypo and hyper thyroidism. In fact, I
                              probably had more of the so-called hyperthyroid
                              symptoms than hypothyroidism. I am still sensative to
                              the heat and seem to sweat more than others around me,
                              but since my TSH down to UNDER 1 I don't have nearly
                              the problem with it that I used to. I suspect I was
                              experiencing subclinical hypothyroid symptoms for
                              years before it actually showed up in blood tests.

                                  Dear Tatezi,
                                  I'm exactly the opposite from Edie. Last winter I paid a $1250.00 natural
                                  gas bill for
                                  December and decided to bring out the flannel nightgowns, socks and anything
                                  else I could find to put on. I have a friend who is like Edie, we can't
                                  even visit each other very much, because I freeze to death in her house and
                                  she cooks in mine. She walked around last winter in t-shirts and jeans. I
                                  reluctantly packed my sweat suits last week (we're moving). If we don't move
                                  in August, I'll have to unpack them. Oh well. Nobody can predict what your
                                  thyroid will do with this disease. I'll trade you my heat bill for your A/C
                                  bill :-) Anne

                                    I am driving up my electricity bill and freezing my family out of the house.

                                    Edie,

                                    I had to laugh at this because it is so true. My husband has the air
                                    conditioning so cold that today it is 95, 105 with the humidity outside and
                                    I am sitting here in sweat pants and a sweat shirt. I do seem to change
                                    clothes a lot from inside to out. He hates sweating the way he does. Just
                                    one of the things you learn to live with while fighting this disease and the
                                    side effects from the treatment. Hope your doing better and am grateful for
                                    the chuckle.

                                    Connie I think the statue of limitations is up in two years on your work comp case. I am not totally sure but that was what we were told a few weeks ago and

                                      I think the statue of limitations is up in two years on your work comp case.
                                      I am not totally sure but that was what we were told a few weeks ago and
                                      maybe all states are different I do not know. So hurry we had not idea. I
                                      wish my mother in law was in Florida right now but she is is Illinois at the
                                      moment or I could get that information for you on the phone book - I am
                                      trying to get a hold of her now to see if she might have taken one of the
                                      phone books home from the area you are talking about when she left last year.
                                      I will let you know if she can get it for us - she lives there 5 months out
                                      of the year. Hope your doing well.

                                      oh the sun thing, I was sensitive to it long before I did treatment as well as the heat, yet told over and over my thyroid was just fine. So I have to assume,

                                        oh the sun thing, I was sensitive to it long before I did treatment as well
                                        as the heat, yet told over and over my thyroid was just fine. So I have to
                                        assume, since there's nothing they say they can do for it, that it's the
                                        hep.

                                        In fact, my gastro said some heppers do have sun/heat sensitivity, even when
                                        not on treatment.

                                        I'm getting much better, but, man, between work and driving with no a/c and
                                        no a/c at home except in one room, I'm barely making this week. If the no
                                        a/c continues, I may have to quit work :(
