Phone is dumb, I was typing clonazapam. Not climax span. I wish!

I have been suffering from anxiety attacks and depression for my entire life.
I am now on Cymbalta and Effexor for the depression and I feel great. I have been on climax spam since 1998 and it keeps my panic attacks to a minimum.
A panic attack in the night (while you are asleep and don't know you're having one can also explain waking up all sweaty.
Since he introduced Effexor I have had not one panic attack! AND not one uncalled for crying attack.

I was actually diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder shortly after dealing with the MS diagnosis. I was on so much medication that I was literally sleeping my life away. I will say that my therapist and psychiatrist are so great. I was on 12 different Bipolar drugs and I am now down to 2. They are Seroquel and Valium. I am supposed to take the Valium 3 times a day because they help with my severe leg muscle spasms, but I only take it at night. Things are so much better for me. Good luck to you.

Here's a good one! Yes, I have night sweats but it was udsually triggered by cortisones.
However I've been experiencing fe era 24/7 for four months and I've been to my PCP, who sent me to an endocrinologist who sent me to an infectious diseases doctor who sent me back to my neurologist who ordered a CT scan (he was worried about me having a blood clot in my lungs) and when I got to the hospital for the CT scan, they called a code sepsis on me! $15000 wort of labwork proved useless, nothing came out unusual with the exception of a high white blood cell count and a fast heartbeat.
Now the infectious disease doctor is sending me for another CT scan, an MRI of my pelvis and more bloodwork.
Meanwhile, I continue to have fevers all the day and night long.
I do wake up soaking wet - to where I have to change nightclothes and my bedding, my hair soaking wet. My skin is always cold and clammy.
The neuro took me off Tecfidera for a month to be sure it's not the catalyst.
Next week I go to my oncology surgeon for my univram and sonogram of my reconstructed breast and they will run more tests to be sure cancer has not metastasized from the original breast cancer.
The ID doc told me he believes I have 'fevers of no known origin.' This can wax and wean with no explanation.
Duh. Why do you think I went to the doctor in the first place?
Will update IF anything else is identified.
