    I have a disease called Dermatomyositis overlapping Lupus. I take 60 mg of prednisone a day, 4 mg of Folic Acid a day, 2 ml. of Methotrexate a week & I get a Retuxan Chemotherapy for 8 hrs 2 times a week every 3 months! My muscle strength has almost completely returned, but my purple skin rash (which looks like psoriasis) that is on my hands, feet, knees, elbows, scalp, & face hasn't really gotten better! I also lost a lot of my hair & the hair I have is like straw! But my biggest issue is the profuse sweating I do all day & night!! I sweat as I dry myself after I get out of the shower & try to dry myself off! I sweat 24 hrs a day! I can't even put makeup on! And if I style the little hair I have, it doesn't last because my scalp, forehead & face sweat so bad! My body pours sweat all day too!! I can deal with all my symptoms, & even the terrible side effects from the 60 mg of prednisone daily, the 2 ml. of Methotrexate weekly & the chemo every 3 months!! But my profuse sweating is embarrassing & keeps me from leaving the house or going outdoors in warm weather, & especially going to any family functions because of the embarrassment of my disgusting sweating!!! Please help me to live a normal life again? This has been going on for 4 years, & I feel like I am loosing my mind!!!
    Sincerely,
    Karen

    I started to get vicious "night cramps" in my calves recently. Process of elimination - unexpected prescription of Folic Acid by my Consultant at around the same time as this "night-terror". He was wrong!

  • Hi, my husband is the one that is sick. He became...

    Hi, my husband is the one that is sick. He became sick in November 2016. We thought he had vertigo however the MRI showed lesions on the brain stem. We spent three weeks in the hospital having all sorts of tests and a brain biopsy that left his left side of his face numb (tingling). We have had two rounds of 5 days of 1000 mg of steroids and have been on 60 mg of oral steroids since the middle of January, 2017. The latest MRI shows the lesions are almost gone. We have now started the transition to methotrexate. We dropped from 60 mg to 50 mg of prednisone at the same time and we are experiencing more dizziness and off balance. I am looking to have somewhere that people understand what we are going through.

  • Hi I started taking folic acid about two weeks ago...

    Hi I started taking folic acid about two weeks ago but I stopped cause am not one who is consistent in taking medicine. Am someone who can go hours without eating. I am slim nd I also want to put on a lil weight. Ok. So I decided to start taking the folic acid again since I have been told its really good if one is trying to get pregnant, now my issue is, I feel headache, nd hungry always though am not like that. My family is happy am eating well now. Do u think its the cause of the folic acid?
