Excessive Night Sweats

2023.06.07 14:58 hazelwitch12 Excessive Night Sweats

Hi! i have been having excessive night sweats for about a year and a half. I am currently on Venlafaxine HCL so i always assumed that was the reasoning. However, i sweat so badly that i wake up in a puddle on my sheets with physical sweat drops all over my body (also have intense dreams). This is not every night, but enough to be bothersome. I have also been facing other health issues over the past year. I randomly had an ovarian cyst, apparently it dissapeared on its own. I also had a 5.3cm colloid cyst on my thyroid that i requested to be drained as it was making it difficult for me to breath. A few weeks ago i was diagnosed with SIBO and just finished up my 14 days of sulfamethoxazole TMP last night. I start a strict low fodmap diet today for the next 6 weeks. My question is, does any of these things cause excessive sweating to the point i feel out of it the next day? Thank you!
Also, female, 31, and i vape.

2023.06.06 18:58 47plants Mystery illness? Neuro related? Idk?

Hi doctors! I (24F) am currently going through a whole process of figuring out my mystery issue. I am almost a year post op from a hysterectomy and endometriosis excision, where adenomyosis was also present and therefore my uterus had to go, but I feel the endometriosis is not related to the issues I am currently having. I am also diagnosed with dysautonomia, which is relevant to what I'm facing. I struggle with depression and other psychological/psychiatric issues, so I am currently taking 450mg Wellbutrin, 40mg Vyvanse, and 10mg Buspar. I also take Vitamin D and B-Complex, as I have been deficient in the past and honestly try to hope that they can alleviate some symptoms. I am currently not deficient in anything, and all blood work done comes back reasonably normal (TSH, CBC, lipids, basic metabolic, A1C, testosterone). The dysautonomia has been an issue since I was a teenager, I remember almost fainting after standing up for most of my life (extreme lightheadedness, throbbing headache feeling like pressure in my head, and losing vision) but I was always told it was just because I was anemic. I should also mention that around 19, I randomly became very ill, I lost 60 pounds in a month and was constantly nauseous and having gastrointestinal issues. I was actually diagnosed with Crohn's despite a negative biopsy. Eventually going down the path of exploring endometriosis, it was concluded that I don't have Crohn's, and those issues were due to endometrial adhesions all over my intestines up to my ribs. Since the surgery I have not had gastro issues. I haven't been anemic since I was a teenager, and the dysautonomia symptoms had been continuing despite that, so I decided to finally discuss that with my doctor as an adult. I was referred for a tilt table test, which I failed, and was diagnosed with dysautonomia. I am waiting for autonomic testing, which was scheduled for January 2024. On top of the dysautonomia though, I experience total body pain (muscular and joint, but especially in my back), extreme fatigue, weakness, and headaches. My vision and memory have also been declining, at 24 years old I was prescribed bifocals and one eye is nearly legally blind status. The brain fog and fatigue is severe. I have issues motivating myself to do what I need to do because I just don't have the energy to do them. When exploring the dysautonomia, I was referred for a brain MRI due to the headaches and vision loss. The MRI showed tonsillar ectopia, and after unofficially speaking to a neurosurgeon who glanced at my MRI, he said it seemed like a moderate Chiari and I should follow up officially with neurosurgery. Based on my research regarding Chiari Malformations, the symptoms were overlapping with what I was experiencing, especially with the chiari's potential to cause dysautonomia symptoms. I sent my MRI to neurosurgery and spoke with them, and after looking at my history and imaging they wanted to do another MRI with a CSF flow study. I just got the report for that today. It states that cerebellar tonsils are "slightly low-lying" but do not meet criteria for Chiari I, and there is not significant crowding of the foramen magnum. CSF flow is unobstructed. There is a 5mm cyst posterior and superior to the neurohypophysis. But overall the impression was a normal MRI. So what now? It's not like I was hoping for an abnormal MRI, but at least it would've explained why I feel the way I do. Fatigue and weakness is making life very difficult and I just want to know how to overcome that. I've tried all the typical recommendations, increased activity and exercise (as best as I can), increased hydration, increased salt, better eating habits, but it falls flat every time and I eventually lose the energy to keep trying without any results. It's impacting my work abilities, as I can't hold my arms up for extended periods and I get lightheaded when I look up or bend over. I am even getting too weak to shower at some points, I feel faint and my arms get exhausted from washing my hair. My neurologist tried propranolol a while back and while it did help the tachycardia, it did not help my symptoms. I know this is such a long shot, but does anyone have any thoughts or recommendations? I have an appointment with rheumatology at the end of this month,a follow up with neurosurgery regarding my MRI results, and the autonomic testing as mentioned is scheduled for January. Is there anything else I can do or try? Any paths I should explore further?

2023.06.02 15:29 Fisherman-Kitchen Is this a reassurance compulsion? What would you do?

I am not doing well and I need you to help me with this situation, what would you do? (Health anxiety OCD)
I had a follow-up thyroid US because I have a small colloid cyst. Radiologist said everything looks fine and the cyst is even smaller than it was on previous scans. The written report states the same. However, if I compare printed pictures of this US with previous one, I see differences on how the cyst looks like (like more grayish on the latest).
Next week I am having my annual gynecological check up and I am thinking of asking the radiologist who will perform my routine breast US if they PLEASE could scan also my thyroid to see what they think of the cyst. I can't stop thinking about this and I am really anxious about whether the second radiologist could find something wrong with my thyroid that the first radiologist missed...
I wish I could trust the first doctor and go on with my life but I am stucked in this now (next month I will be stucked in something else 😭)... do you think it is a reassurance compulsion and that I should not ask this second radiologist to check my thyroid again? Or what would you do?
Thank you. I really need help

2023.06.01 15:47 Basic_Concentrate196 Nobody can figure out what’s wrong with my body

I don’t know what’s wrong with my body
I’m sorry for the long post!! Age: 24 Sex: F Ht: 5ft Wt: 113lbs Lexapro (10mg) and Concerta (54 mg). I started medications in Dec 2022 and Feb 2023 after symptoms first started.
Since August I have had severe and random bruising and itching all over my body without a rash. In September I fainted in my kitchen, I’ve never fainted before and it hasn’t happened again since. Around November I started having night sweats, which have been on and off, but pretty consistent. I used to be an avid long distance runner but since December I haven’t been able to run and have barely even been able to go on long walks. I’ve been becoming severely more fatigued, I’ve had shortness of breath, body aches, and a prolonged healing time for infections (I was sick with a cold in March for about a month and then a few weeks later I got sick again for a week). I have swollen lymph nodes in my groin and neck that haven’t decreased in size; they feel maybe a tad bigger than when I first noticed them and they’ve increased in quantity. The groin lymph nodes are highly vascularized and 2 in the neck have mildly thickened cortexes (these were ultrasounded in early March). About a month ago, 2 more appeared in my left axilla and 1 in the right (those 3 were ultrasounded 05/22 and said to be reactive with thickened cortexes but not eligible for biopsy). None have decreased in size or gone away. I now have two more in my left clavicle.
My original CBC (1/25/23): wbc 4.92, lymphocyte 38.8%, hct 35.4, hgb 11.9, rbc 3.87, imm. granulocytes 0.2, monos 8.9, eos 1.4, basos 0.6, platelets 145.
My EBV and EBNA show antibodies from a past infection but no current infection and I didn’t even know I’ve had mono before.
Thyroid is normal with few very small colloid cysts, TSH and T4 normal, urinalysis normal, CMP normal, crp less than 1, ESR 3, B12 normal, folate normal, iron and TIBC normal, ferritin normal, rheumatoid factor normal, ANA negative, EKG normal, chest X-ray normal, CBV Ab IgM <30 (negative), CBV Ab IgG 0.64 (equivocal/negative), TB negative, HIV negative. PT and PTT were normal, no von willebrands activity, INR was 1. I am vaccinated against hepatitis. Protein electrophoresis was also normal.
My CT was negative along with my echo (except a trace heart murmur) so I genuinely have no idea what’s wrong with my body. My Dr wanted to biopsy but with the negative CT she’s now just referred me to a hematologist.
Symptoms have been ongoing for over 9 months and have been getting worse. I have a family history of Ashkenazi Jew, my half sister had ovarian cancer at 28, and my maternal grandfather has diabetes and kidney cancer that metastasized to the lungs, other than that I don’t know my family’s med history.
Should I push for a biopsy or just wait a month to see the heme? I’m just so exhausted of feeling like this and not knowing what’s going on w my body. Please help

2023.06.01 14:55 Fisherman-Kitchen Thyroid US I need help

34F Hypochondriac. Severe health anxiety
Last week I had a thyroid ultrasound (I have one every 3 years for a follow-up because I have a small colloid cyst) and the radiologist (a very kind doctor, who also performed my previous 3 thyroid US) told me at the very moment she did the scan that everything is fine and that what I have is in fact a colloid cyst, that it is nothing to worry and that it is even smaller than it showed in previous scans. Now I have the written report and printed pictures, the report says what she told me (5mm rounded image, no vascularity, colloid cyst). However, if I analyze the printed images, the cyst seems different that it was if compared with the printed previous ultrasounds I had. It seems like more grayish on the gray scale of US. Googling how thyroid colloid cyst looks on US I started to think that what I have now is not some benign colloid cyst and that she is missing something, otherwise why does it look different than before? I am going crazy. I don't know how to trust her. If I could I would have another scan done but I can't, I also know that if I start seeking reassurance with other doctors I would not stop.
Please help me. What do I do, what if she is wrong? Why does the cyst look different than before?

2023.05.28 00:25 _cdlc_ S05E19 - Elevator Love Letter

I was so disappointed at Derek when I saw him setting up the bedroom with rose petals and candles to propose to Mer, it was such a cliche and cursi way of doing it, so anti-Mer so unworthy of the build up of their relationship. I said to myself, this can’t be the way he goes and propose to her, even after what Cristina told him REALLY? He went more for the Chief’s suggestion that the one from Mer’s person?!
But boy did he redeem himself. His proposal was not corny was not cursi was not ordinary wasn’t a cliche or a classic guy on one-knee thing, it was unorthodox unique personal intimate and extremely romantic in a way that belong to them, in a way that pointed the remarks of their relationship from surgery, their passion. (I’m a sucker for good romance) One of his top 5 McDreamy moments in my book.

Hey. Come on in.
This is the CT of Katie Bryce, 16 y/o female subarachnoid aneurysm. It was the first surgery we ever scrubbed in together, our first save.
Right here is a cerebral cyst. Tough save, but we did it. I kissed you in the stairwell after the surgery.
And this right here is where Dr. Bailey kicked you out of the surgery because she caught us in your driveway in my car.
And right here ... This is a 7-Hour craniotomy, and you held the clamp the entire time, never flinched. That's when I knew you were gonna be an incredible surgeon.
And right here, this is when I supervised you drilling a burr hole for the very first time. I was watching more than I was watching the drilling. ’cause I knew I had fallen in love with you.
Beth Monroe, Who made our clinical trial a success by surviving. You talked me into putting her under. That's when I knew I needed you.
And this is today. Post-Op head CT of Izzie Stevens. You see that? Tumor free ... Because of you. You got me into the OR.
If there's a crisis, you don't freeze. You move forward. You get the rest of us to move forward, Because you've seen worse, you've survived worse. And you know we'll survive, too.
You say you're all ... dark and twisty, but that's not a flaw, it's a strength. It makes you who you are.
I'm not gonna get down on one knee. I'm not gonna ask a question.
I LOVE YOU, MEREDITH GREY. And I want to spend the rest of my life with you.

2023.05.26 15:19 Good_karma5651521 Understanding lymph ultrasound results? Plz help 🙏🏼

Hi I got my lymph ultrasound results back on MyChart and am waiting for them to call me in mean time I’m driving myself insane at the results…
In the area of palpable concern, a curvilinear hypoechoic region measuring up to 0.2 cm in short axis without internal vascularity is demonstrated. No definitive fatty hilum is identified. Findings are nonspecific and are not definitive for a lymph node given present appearance. However, no discrete worrisome sonographic features. No additional suspicious lesion or abnormal soft tissue findings in the posterior neck.
Rounded somewhat trilaminar appearing structure in the left lateral trachea below the level of the thyroid on level 6 cine clip, possibly representing a displaced partially distended esophagus? Findings are not definitive as no correlating imaging is available at the time of this dictation.
Lateral compartment (levels I-V) lymph nodes: Negative for adenopathy.
Central compartment (level VI) lymph nodes: Negative for adenopathy.
Other: Colloid cyst within the right hemithyroid.
Impression:
  1. In the area of concern, nonspecific 0.2 cm curvilinear hypoechoic region without worrisome features.
  2. No abnormal lymphadenopathy in short axis size criteria.
  3. At the level of the left mid trachea, question of a mildly distended fluid-filled esophagus? Correlation with prior imaging if available.
What does it all mean? Dr google is frightening lol

2023.05.25 22:20 ItsActuallyMeNow First Neurosurgeon appt…. Medication??????

Today, I had my first appt with a neurosurgeon in Michigan. He diagnosed me with Arnold-Chiari syndrome, but gave me a referral for a neurologist as he said that they usually try different medications before surgery.
I’m conflicted because no pain medicine has worked so far, so I’m wondering what kind of medicine would help with this condition? My MRI showed “bilateral low lying cerebellar tonsils measuring up to 7 mm below the level of the foramen magnum” and “Small bilateral maxillary sinus mucosal retention cyst”.
28(F), 5’6, 115lbs. Symptoms: -consistent headache for 2 months, sometimes it’s more severe. Mostly in the back of my head, neck, upper back, and left temple. I felt it in my right temple only once. -left eye pressure (always feels like my left eye is lower than my right). -short term memory loss -numbness in left arm -tremors in hands -throat feels pushed in on the left side -fatigue -occasional dizziness when laying down -vertigo -zoning out a lot -weird random, but many deja vu moments
I am a nervous wreck wrapped in pain, and would appreciate any insight on your experience with working with your neurologists/neurosurgeon.

2023.05.20 02:03 ItsActuallyMeNow MRI Results

Hi there, after a ct scan I was directed to get an MRI due to ‘borderline cerebellum ectopia’. The MRI results just came in and I’m wondering if any of you can simplify it for me based on experience.
FINDINGS:
There are bilateral low lying cerebellar tonsils measuring up to 7 mm below the level of the foramen magnum.
Brain volume is preserved for the patient's age. Prominent perivascular spaces seen scattered throughout both cerebral hemispheres.
There is no area of restricted diffusion or abnormal enhancement. No mass, mass effect or shift of midline structures. No intracranial hemorrhage or abnormal extra axial fluid collection. No hydrocephalus and the basal cisterns are patent.
Small bilateral maxillary sinus mucosal retention cysts.
UPDATE Symptoms: constant headache that doesn’t go away (sometimes turns into a migraine), sinus pressure, pain behind left eye (randomly), shaking hands, numbness in left hand and right pinky toe (occasionally), nausea, fatigue, rapid heartbeat (occasionally, usually last for 1-2 days).

2023.05.19 02:09 castrom180 Biopsy results are in : Benign

My daughters FNA happened to Tuesday morning and we got the results this morning. It says it could be a colloid cyst, adenomatous nodule, or macro follicular adenoma. Clinical correlation is recommended. It’s is great news but she wants the nodule out. It’s bothering her. She’s also a bit worried because she has had so many issues (PCOS, joint inflammation, hit flashes, weight gain, been jittery, unable to sleep but also super tired all the time) and she was hoping the nodule and the nodule composition would provide a diagnosis and a solution. So we are back to square one I guess. My question to all of you: should we ask for a second opinion? Should we push for the removal of the nodule? We are in un chartered waters now so any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

2023.05.17 00:44 GloveObjective6596 Could this be normal?

Hello, I’m new here and so grateful for the posts already! A few months ago I went to the doctor with symptoms of extreme lightheadedness, near constant mild headache and episodes of head/eye pressure with vision changes, thinking it was a head or brain related issue and ended up referred to an endo due to low TSH. I also recently have had ongoing symptoms that I associated with stress/having young kids/not taking great care of myself, but endo says could be related which are fatigue, exercise intolerance, periodic high blood pressure, palpitations, nausea, diarrhea and brain fog.
My various tests have been- TSH: 0.22, 0.324, 0.37 (RR 0.45- 4.5) T4 free: 1.39, 1.47 (RR 0.82- 1.77) TBII negative TSI negative Ultrasound showed a 9mm colloid cyst, everything else normal.
Today I received the results from my uptake and scan, which says: “calculated 24 hour radioactive iodine uptake of 19%. In the setting of low TSH, this finding is considered inappropriately elevated. In this patient with subclinical hyperthyroidism, the overall findings are most suggestive of early/developing Graves’ disease.”
I will obviously be talking to my doctor about this, but my concern is that something else going on in my body isn’t missed with the focus on my thyroid, because I feel so terrible and from what I understand about thyroid function, none of my results themselves would cause any symptoms. Is it possible for someone to just have a TSH a little below the normal range and I should be going back to my primary care for other referrals? Has anyone else had a similar experience with symptoms first and later labs changed or they tested positive for antibodies?
