Do Any Of You Have Issues With Extreme Sweating?

I have problems with sweat dripping down me constantly and not because of the temperature or even stress but i have read it has something to possibly do with nervous system issues.. do any of you have any idea about this?? I also have diabetes and wonder if maybe that has something to do with it too..even when i wake up at night especially if i stop breathing or have a deep sleep i wake up with a drenched bed.. it is very annoying but i can only find so much about it..should i be worried? just… read more

I have brittle diabetes type 1.. my bloodsugar can raise at an emotional upset or lower with being calm.. it can sink randomly but i have a worse case than most.. i test myself more than 10 times a day to stay under controll and take at least 7 injections.. it can make you dizzy or sick or faint or barf or tired or shake.. this was a question to sweating.. but in all honesty i was much more capable of a normal life freedom driving and working without epilepsy.. i cant monitor it daily or prevent the effects of it nomatter how hard i try.. i have a very severe case of epilepsy seizures and damage however i want to say to all of you. I am constantly upset and feeling hopeless do to the lack of help to people in situations not making enough to pay rent not allowed by doctors concerned to work not allowed to drive to somehow find a way to make it better and farther in life. I must say.. nomatter what help i dont have if I can’t find it i will make and find my own never give up but also one day i pray to make a difference and help and awareness for people like us. Money is an issue but if i die trying i will do my best to accomplish this and i think every day of somehow all of us doing this together. One day i will think of a plan to do this and sometimes I believe we all need to find a way to improve. Supporting having compassion and understanding advice and fellow awareness and safety and communication in our lives is a beginning and more of the world can use this. People with or without medical hinderances have hinderances every way they turn and i want to change that. People feel allone sad hopeless and even i do. I think every day and feel like a failure but i still see a ray of sun waiting to shine and it drives me crazy never finding a way to do it. Sometimes it takes a group of people to start one. Perhaps we should find ways to do this in other ways as well. Call me crazy but i speak my mind.

I never sweat! I am going through menopause and very rarely sweat now! Have you said anything to your doctor and what medications do you take?? One other thing. My ex husband sweat all the time too. Nobody noticed why but it was found out there was a genetic cause on his dads side of the family. It had not been noticed for a long time since his mother and dad had been divorced and he had to get the medical history. Sometimes stress can cause it. Just look at all the different cause around you because they can combine to make them. gOOD LUCK AND HAVE A SEIZURE FREE DAY!

You are not crazy if you're making sense. Its just people don't want to make the time to show compassion, understanding unless there is something in it for them. Otherwise, they don't see the point. It would be nice if we could find work with a company that we could work at home. I still feel bad I can't work anymore because of my seizures and stress. But I find myself having to be like you and find a way to get through the day. Find a doctor who can assist me and not tell me to take 2 and call me in the morning if anything changes. You always find a way to do it. Take care, and continue to speak your mind. Maybe someone will listen.

The only time that I sweat is when I wake up in the middle of the night and I am drenched in sweat even when air conditioning is on and the fan is on, it could be winter or summer. When I go to bed I am cold, but I will wake up drenched in sweat And then I wake up in the morning like an ice cube freezing. And what I sleep in are just shorts and a sports bra. I don’t know why, but that’s what happens to me and in my head I’m thinking it has to do with medications? What I would do in my opinion would research the medications you take and the side effects. Then what you read call your neurologist and see what they have to say. That’s what I would do if you’re really concerned.

I never asked Or researched with the medications I take, I just let it go because it’s happened to me my whole life.
