Brief Answer:
Hyperhidrosis.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Friend.
Welcome to HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney.
I understand your concern.
This can be due to idiopathic Hyperhidrosis.
Idiopathic means without a cause.
But to say it is idiopathic we need to rule out few causes that can cause it.
Treatment and remedy would depend on that only.
I would like to know following:
1. Any history of thyroid disorder?
2. Any history of high blood pressure or diabetes?
3. Any history of flushing or feeling of increase in heart rate that is palpitations.
4. Any history of any cardiac disease?
5. Do you sweat a lot in winters also?
6. Are you overweight?

Revert with these details in point wise manner for a better help.

Brief Answer:
Detail Follows.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Friend.
I would advise you to get a thyroid profile and fasting blood sugar done.
If they are normal then we would say it is idiopathic Hyperhidrosis.
As such no treatment is effective in controlling the sweating properly.
What is required is to maintain hygiene and cleaniness to prevent any infection.
There are no drugs effective for idiopathic Hyperhidrosis .
Revert back to me with your test results if they come out to be abnormal.
If you have any further query please ask me.
Stay Healthy.

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.

Every once in a while I can feel what I believe is a skipped, or extra heartbeat. I have no pain or dizziness or shortness of breath along with this. I do suffer from panic/anxiety and I am currently on Xanax for it. I am also on Levothyroxine for Hypothyroidism. My question is this: I have a trip to Cedar Point coming up in August and I want to know if I should be concerned about going on thrill rides and rollercoasters with my family.
