I have a couple of theories but depends on other meds. I take Betaseron but the sweats were occuring before I started it. Guess I can't blame that med.
I recently have been getting night-sweats. The occaisional symptom started soon after I started Low Dose Naltrexone. I thought that my night-sweats were a side-effect of LDN, but after reviewing this thread, I think that Deb's (OddDuck) hypothesis makes more sense.
In 2000 I participated in a NASA sponsored trial conducted by the Rocky Mountain MS Center (RMSC) on "cooling therapy." I had a flare-up in the middle of the trial, so I was removed, and never got to see the final results. However, they must have been positive, the RMSC have vests that people can use.
That there was such a study initially indicates that there is a large enough sub-group of people with MS who have body temperature issues. Why else would they do such a study?
What is the place of thermoregulation in understanding what is Multiple Sclerosis? If it happens to so many of us, why isn't this a window to understanding what the disease is?
