Symptoms started 2 years ago after doing anabolic steroids?
For the last 13 months
-Started with very sweaty red and hot hands and feet, then i began to have hot flushes, particularly bad when stressed
-feels like my body cannot tolerate heat
– i have Dry flushing face and neck but mainly cheeks are the worst symptom
-my upper arms flush
-Redness on the cheeks is now persistent and is always there even when not flushing, it becomes inflamed simply by washing with water or touching or if body temp rises
(Proprananol has made a significant difference in treating this)

Exersize creates flushing
**Hands and feet feel hot and sweaty and swollen when warm

General Information: Symptoms started 2 years ago after doing anabolic steroids for about 4 weeks before deciding it was a bad idea and stopping, i belive i bottomed out my estrogen taking arimidex to counter excess breast tissue. This in turn created a constant anxious feeling which got worse for around 5 months despite having stopped all the other meds.
I went to the doctors about this anxiety issue and was prescribed anti depressants, for 4 months i felt back to normal and i was fine, then i started to get the sweaty hands i quit the anti depressants without tapering, the symptoms have then developed into the above and have continued for the last 13 months since quitting anti depressants.
– proprananol greatly reduces symptoms, when i dont take symptoms return
