About sweating...
Apr 22, 2009
I was wondering--for those of you that take fludro., I was wondering if you sweated normally before starting the drug, when you were without adequate blood volume. In other words, you were probably "dehydrated" before fludro., before it expanded your blood volume. I was wondering because I have almost lost my ability to sweat when in heat, but am not skinny or nauseous, like most Addisonians. I do get lightheaded when standing. I have been shown to have POTS, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. Don't know why I have it though. I just "feel" dehydrated, even though I drink adequate fluids. I was wondering if a doctor would try my on a trial dose of fludro., then maybe I would have adequate blood volume, and then I would start sweating appropriately. Any stories or ideas?
