I can suddenly sweat profusely setting or active . It is only my neck and head that suddenly become very hot and wet . I am taking encitalpram and occasionally take on tramado for arthritis pain . Could there be a combination of those two drugs cause sudden sweating episodes.

Hello - The symptoms started last Friday, we had been to the zoo on Thursday. BY midday Friday I went to bed feeling achy, tender and exhausted. As the days progressed this did not change. I have had no appetite - everything tastes metallic. My tonsils are slightly swollen. I frequently cycle between severe chills and intense sweating. The sweating has become more or less none stop in the last couple days. The condition seems to be worsening. I have taken aspirin to help with the headaches and hot bathes to help with the aching. Please advise.
