What's with the sweating??
chelylynne posted:
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
hackwriter responded:
Michele, Did you get a round of steroids in the hospital? That can cause the sweats. Kim
behap2day2 responded:
Michele, Sure could be the Avonex - that's one of the documented side effects. How long have you been on it? Lynn
chelylynne responded:
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 gotta laugh right? Michele

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. Rory
