Does Anyone Get Extreme Exhaustion And A Lot Of Sweating When Doing Simple Chores Like Sweeping?

Does Anyone Get Extreme Exhaustion And A Lot Of Sweating When Doing Simple Chores Like Sweeping?

I have to stop in the middle of just sweeping to catch my breath. I have had my heart checked, sleep studies, and a million blood tests and everything seems fine. When I do my daily 1 mile walk with the dog, sometimes I have to stop and lean on something because I feel like I'm going to pass out. Other days I'm just fine. I'm 62 and last menopause so it's not that. Is this fibro also?

Im 38 and the same. Ive even seen a cardiologist as ive also had elevated heartrate and shortness of breath with the sweating. Nothing wrong witb my heart but he did state that my physical pain was also contributing to the cause. I used to run and was extremely active. Now i sweat profusely and breathe like a locomotive just climbing stairs. I wear a bandana to keep the sweat out of my eyes when i vacuum. I can definitely relate to you. Hugs!

This is exertion fatigue and part of FMS. I can barely walk a few yards without feeling the need to rest. I honestly feel like collapsing sometimes after too much walking. As for sweating, thatโ€™s another one of the annoying symptoms too. Itโ€™s good you ruled everything else though. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

My face and forehead sweat terribly with any exertion, very frustrating! Any physical housework makes my face drip in sweat. I don't perspire anywhere else though, very weird. I also don't have endurance like I used to. Even taking a shower and washing my long hair wipes me out for a couple hours.

Sweating is a side effect of fibro. Also medications as well. My whole head and neck drip with sweat with whatever I do. Sometimes so embarrassing as well.
