What can I do about those sudden heavy sweats?

Many women in their 40s and 50s assume that the sweats they experience are simply hot flashes. Don't be fooled. Men with fibro get these sweats, as do non-menopausal women. Dressing in layers helps, as when the sweats start you can peel a couple off. Have tissue handy because sometimes the sweat can be so copious that it rolls into your eyes.
