I am taking 2.5 mg of medroxyprogesterone daily. I take it for a very rare condition called hereditary angioedema, which causes swelling under the skin, typically in the abdomen causing severe abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea. It can also cause swelling in the throat which is fatal if untreated, as well as swelling in the extremities, lip, face.
I don't know if it's actually helping or not, but the night sweats soak my nightgown once or twice during the night, and I have to change the sheets daily.
Has anyone found a way to deal better with the night sweats? I am 66 years old, and have had many, many diagnostic tests, and the only thing that is wrong with me is the hereditary angioedema.
