hello and welcome to healthcare magic!!

well you seem to be suffering from a condition called hyperhydrosis, it usually presents with excessive sweating in the palms and soles and also in underarms it would be better that you consulted a dermatologist who will guide you regarding the management and also please get a thyroid profile test done as high thyroid hormones can be another reason for your condition in which case further investigation maybe necessary.

Every single night my fiance has been having severe night sweats. This has been going on for quite some time. I have been with him for over 2 and a half years and it s been getting worse. Around 2 to 3 am I wake us up, completely drenched in sweat. Every night we have to take our bed sheets off, take a shower (again), and get cleaned up. The entire bed is soaked and we feel like we just got out of a swimming pool. I talked him into going to his doctor last month to see what the problem is, but she said there is nothing wrong. The doctor did several blood tests and everything came back as normal. He is on a very low prescription of antidepressants and has been for several years, but nothing has been changed lately. Other than that, he is very active, healthy, perfect weight, etc. He never gets sick and seems perfectly normal otherwise. Not only is this an annoyance to have to wash bed sheets everyday and get cleaned up at 3 in the morning, I am really beginning to get scared something is wrong with him! :( I m not sure what it could be or what steps to take next. I am even having a hard time of sleeping at night because I am constantly waking up or checking him to see if he is getting close to having a night sweat. HELP!!!! I am desperate for answers....it s 3 am and it happened again for the 6th time this week! We are currently down stairs in the couch and recliner because our bed is soaked. I usually have two sets of plastic protectors on, but I can t keep up with the laundry due to the frequency of these night sweats.

I have been experiencing this type of hair loss for 9 months now. Blood tests for Iron deficiency and thyroid are normal. I have undergone treatment from a dermatologist which included monthly visits for Kenalog injections and use Clobetesal nightly. I did not have an appointment this month as the thought was it may be my last affected area. Now I have 5 bald patches ranging in size from a nickel to half-dollar. It is thought that it is due to emotional stress as my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer last January and these spots started to appear the following March. My husband is undergoing chemo with little to not side effects and the treatment will add years to his life, so one would think I would no longer be stressed, I am grateful for that. I just don't know why these are still appearing and should I consider another method of treatment. I plan to schedule another appointment with my dermatologist and I am not sure what to ask for. Could you give me some alternative choices that I may be able to ask him about? I appreciate you being there. Thank you. Claudia Crowe

Hi, I am 34 years old and have 3 kids. Since my youngest, my 3 year old was born I have been losing hair. But recently it is too much and my hair is so thin now and brittle. I checked my thyroid and its 4.17. Is that too high or could it be a hormonal imbalance?
