Body overheating without sweating
Posted 27 October 2014 - 08:33 AM
I am three years on Tasigna and am having a problem with my body overheating. It happens mostly in the middle of the night but occasionally during daytime. I do not sweat when it happens but my body feels like it will spontaneously combust! As a matter of fact I do not sweat at all anymore, just overheat. Does anyone else experience this? Is it from the med or should I have my doc investigate other causes?
Thanks and good health to all!

I actually do feel like this and I take Sprycel. I do perspire but I don't tolerate heat well at all. I never have really but it is much worse now.
I remember reading in the LLS literature I was given on CML that heat intolerance was a symptom but I don't think this is caused by CML, especially when it's well controlled.
I didn't experience this during the 9 months I was on Gleevec but I noticed it on the first really warm day with Sprycel, I was in a convertible and I started feeling ill from the heat.
I think it's the drugs.

I am on Gleevec 400mg I did not have my thyroid checked but I do get very hot in the night. Its like a hot flush. I used to get night sweats before diagnosis but I don't have them anymore just these flushes with no sweating. Thanks for sharing
