Sweating while eating JB
Jan 8, 2001

I am HIV+, currently taking the following medications: Celexa, Fortavase, Combivir, Trazadone and Marinol. While eating, and it doesn't matter what I am eating, I am literally sweating in my soup. Sweating occurs off of my head area. While eating out it does become annoying and embarrassing. My current physician doesn't seem to know what could be causing this, medication, the disease or a combination of both. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Response from Dr. Bartlett

This is a new one to me. It sounds as if you may have some neurologic dysfunction whereby the nerves to your stomach which are activated by food are also causing increased perspiration. I might suggest trying to eliminate possible medication causes one by one in collaboration with your health care provider.
