Is it possible to have cholinergic urticaria, even though I sweat profusely when I have an episode? I have all the other symptoms such as pins and needles, extreme flushing, tiny bumps, and the urgency to cool myself off as soon as possible. No one has ever been able to tell me what is wrong with me.
In fact, I am often ignored. However, once someone sees me in the throws of an attack, they quickly understand why I am so concerned. I’ve been living with this for three years now, and it is debilitating, life changing, and isolating. Any insight that you have would be helpful.
When I go from one temp to another, my body begins to sweat profusely. I have tingling, pins and needles, and extreme red flushing. This sounds similar to the symptoms of cholinergic urticaria, except I have intense embarrassing sweating. My hair will become so soaked with sweat that it looks like I just showered. This happens going from shop to shop, just after a shower, from outdoors to a warm car, and from shade to sunlight.
Can you help me?
