My oncologist prescribed pilocarpine to promote saliva production. It seems to be working. He also prescribed prednisone for some residual swelling in my throat. It also seems to be working. Yay for modern chemistry.
Last night, after being in bed about a half hour, I noticed I was sweaty. Very sweaty. But I didn’t feel overheated. I traded my down quilt for a lighter blanket. That had me feeling a little chilly (it was about 45°F/7°C) in the van) but was still sweating. I traded my damp t-shirt for a dry one. Once in a while a tingling wave would wash across my torso.
Were sweating and tingles side effects of the meds? Today I looked it up. Neither was mentioned.
Was it something I ate?
Was it a combination of the drugs and food?
Was I trying to express my adoration for a woman?
Anyway, the weirdness eventually passed (replaced by my normal weirdness) and I slept well, woke up refreshed.
