OK..ever since I was in the hospital, I'm sweating like a crazy person. I walk from the house to the car..and I look like chris farley in his old snl days. Any advice?? What's causing this? Is it the Avonex?

Thanks, Michele

Michele,

Did you get a round of steroids in the hospital? That can cause the sweats.

Michele,

Sure could be the Avonex - that's one of the documented side effects. How long have you been on it?

I've had 3 rounds of steroids starting on Dec 8..oral and iv. I've been done for a bit now. I had originally thought that but it's getting worse not better. I know about the sweating when you get the injection but just going out to the car and have my hair completely wet is creepy. I end up with bad hair, no makeup...a lovely sight I'm sure ...if I could see..ugh..you gotta laugh right?

Good morning Michele

I cann't say that I have expierenced this as a side effect of Avonex but a phone call or E-mail to the support people might get you answers and tips on how to handle it.
