Hi,
This condition is called hyperhydrosis,you do not worry it is common condition.
more sweating keeps your skin smooth,minute holes in the skin remains open so certain unwanted toxic materials excreted through perspiration and your kidney has to work less.
Only precaution you have to take is to take more salt with lemon juice to prevent low sodium level.
Take plenty of water.
Apply good talcum powder and use deodorant frequently to mask the smell.
ok and bye.

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.

That would be awesome. I cant take it anymore. I am 57, disabled and finally on medicare , but my plan covers nothing, so i am changing it and will seek treatment in jan 2013. I have ibs, migraines, depression, anxiety, fibromyalgia . I cant tolerate most meds, am really overly sensitive. So i take prozac; elavil , requip for rls and ativan at bedtime; prilosec daily; imitrex , vicoden prn. Still very depressed, have been whole life. Now i was severely hypothyroid, started taking synthroid 75mcg and blood test follow up was now normal. I cant get anything done, i am exhausted just going to the front door, my house us a disaster, i half the time just dont care, at the same time feel bad that my sons friends have to see this mess. I try every few days to do something. I cant leave the house because of the diahrrea and the profuse sweating on my head is so embarrassing. When i try to straighten up, i get so hot, my face turns beet red, i sweat profusely on my head to thd point it runs and i have to wear a sweatband or towel and my hair gets drenched. I start to pant, i shake, i get nauseated and sometimes do throw up. On top of that i always hurt somewhere. I have had arthritis since i was in sixth grade affecting my joints and the fibro gets worse every year and hurts everywhere in between. I help support a few causes dear to my heart, on computer, but i cant leave to be more involved. I used to love yard sales and thrift shops and decorating. Now if i have a brief period of interest, i cant do any if it. The pain, nausea, cramping, sweating, weak and shaking is getting to be too much for me. I am more and more depressed. I dont know what to do. I live in cincinnati where the doctors dont really believe in fibromyalgia so the send you to a pain clinic. Then they treat you like a drug addict cos the cant find anything wrong. The one local doc for fibro, wants cash up front and you send to your own insur. I cant do that. I dont even have much food after paying utilities. Is there hope for me? I wish i could find something. I sink lower every day. Lynne

About four years ago, I was diagnosed with ventricular tachicardia. I was given a catheter ablation to treat it, and it corrected an irregular heart beat that I've had since I can remember, but I still experience the rapid heart beats every now and again when Im out running or doing some other strenuous activity. Another thing that I've had since I can remember is excessive sweating, and I mean very excessive. What it takes for a normal person to sweat, it would take A LOT LESS for me. My question is, is the excessive sweating linked to the tachycardia? Of course, tachycardia causes the fast heart beat which in turn causes the sweating, but even when Im not experiencing the rapid irregular heart beats, I still manage to completely soak a t shirt when the guy next to me whose done the same amount of work is completely dry, aside from a few sweat beads on the forehead.

I suffer from excessive sweating . My body is nearly always clammy and my head drives me insane. I have sweat running down behind my ears and my face beads with sweat. My mother suffered the same problem. I am 58 yrs old. This has become worse in the last 5 to 8 yrs. I am on efexor for severe chronic depression. I also take seroquin, prescribed in the last 2 mnths. Mobic, nexium and I take panadol osteo. It can be only 2 or 3 degrees, and as soon as I start to vacuum I start to sweat. I usually wear a sweat band at work . I don t even own a coat. If I have a warm drink it starts.
