I have also been through a stage of full body sweats, mainly at night.
I was also on a drug the same as Peanut to protect my ovaries when I did 6 months of Cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan). I finished both in June 06 and since then the "menopause" sweats have now subsided. In saying that I still have no period so I imagine the hormones are still trying to work themselves out !
Diagnosed 2006 - Diffuse Scleroderma
Skin and lung involvement

I even thought perhaps the problem was "hot flashes", but my hormones are doing great - I have a wonderful primary doctor and am very lucky to have her.
I've recently switched pain medications and the sweating seems to have subsided a bit. I hope it stays that way because I am to start Enbrel soon.
Both my rheumatologist and pain doctor have mentioned that narcotic pain relievers will increase sweating. I don't know if this relates to anyone here, but thought I would pass it along.
Good luck to you all!
Maybe one day this will all be just a bad dream.

Last summer the heat was affecting me a lot. When it got about 80*, I felt heavy, no energy, can't breathe well, can hardly move. Luckily we have an air conditioner in the living room so that's where I stay when it gets too hot. At least now I have Scleroderma to blame it on! My husband has Multiple Sclerosis and he was starting to think I had that too, because the heat affected me so much.
