Cold sweats. It has been endless everyday I sweat buckets and at times shiver it’s come to a point where I sleep with hot water bags and sometimes use the hair dryer to warm up. What should I do ?

Hi Jess,

Sorry to hear about your compression fracture! I presume this is a compression fracture of your spine. These fractures usually are healing at 2 months so it would not be usual to be having cold sweats and symptoms at 2 months. It could be because the fracture is not healing well, or complications such as an infection or nerve compression have developed. Would suggest getting it checked by your specialist or a specialist to assess if any of these issues have developed.

Thank you for the prompt response this issue has been weighing on my mind. Are there any other indicators I can look out for before coming to the conclusion of nerve or infection? 

Because I did not do any surgeries not have a I fallen ill. I see a physiotherapist as well she has not mentioned anything like that so was wondering if there are any other factors?

Hi Jess,

Hard to say just based on symptoms. You may need to consider further imaging and/or blood tests to be able to tell if any issues have developed that can explain your cold sweats. Cold sweats are quite a broad symptom and can be due to many different causes.
