4. Excessive Sweating Is Not Uncommon
Pain can radiate through your body in a number of ways, leaving some fibromyalgia patients feeling hot and feverish. Heavy perspiration among fibro sufferers can be traced to a dysfunction in the hypothalamus gland in the brain, which controls a number of your body’s automatic functions. Luckily, there are ways to cool off this response in your brain, including certain medications and a few creative lifestyle changes.
