Here are the things I find helpful:
I take high dose Magnesium everyday.
Folic acid double dose daily.
I drink a glass of water with bicarbonate of soda (1 teaspoon) every morning.
Use only pure Hymalayan pink salt.
I use a very good probiotic daily - this helps to keep my digestive system healthy.
Try to stay away from artificial sugars, preservatives, colorants etc.
Drink plenty of fluid in a day.
Eat plenty of the antioxidant rich vegetables and fruit.
Never sneer at the good old apple - one of the best fruits you can eat.
Get as much rest as you can but try to also get some mild exercise in as well.
All this helps me with pain, sleeplessness, muscle cramps, headaches, shocks, etc.

Hi Sue. Can I ask, did your sweats just stop on its own or did you take something for it? I ask as I too suffer with the sweats and it's getting me down as it's so embarrassing when I'm out, and I can feel the sweats coming on. 😀

I suffer with excessive sweating at night. Before fibromyalgia diagnosis I hardly sweated at all now I wake up drenched then I start freezing. Then I usually go back to sleep and wake up drenched again. It happens to me almost every night. I thought I was in menopause but my doctor checked and I am not. It’s horrible if anyone knows how to help this please tell me.

It happened to me last night. The excessive sweating started happening for me 2 years ago. I always sweated heavily when doing something but then it got worst. I have already been through menopause, so that was written off. Finally went to Cleveland Clinic & got my diagnosis.
The electric shocks are the weirdest things ever. Mine mostly happen at night but I have gotten them during the day.
I know there isn’t a cure but I have found that my sweating decreases per my diet. I’ve cut out all sugar now. I’m also insulin resistant & started in the past couple weeks cutting sugar completely. It has helped my symptoms overall.
