Consult a physician and get evaluated. We have to rule out cardiac conditions which can present with similar symptoms.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I am 25 years old and I currently weight 175 and am 5 7. I have over the past 2 years been increasingly gaining weight. I exercise 3 times a week, have tried every diet, have seen a nutritionist, and a family doctor. Everyone says that I am doing everything right but they can not explain why I keep gaining weight. My other symptoms are I only move my bowels once maybe twice a week, I get random hot flashes, I have night sweats, I am tired and moody a lot. I am not on any medication and there is no way I am pregnant. Thyroid problems run in my family but I have been tested and everything came back within the normal range even thought I have most of the symptoms. I started my weight at 160 this year and just keep gaining weight. If you have any ideas on what this could be please let me know. I have read that not all people with hypothyroidism can be proven with the tests but if this is true I don t know how to be put on medication if I can not have a doctor prescribe it.

My husband sweats profusully at night, even though we keep the house at 62 degrees. I am having to wash sheets everyday. I noticed that when he works out he never sweats under his arms, and he could go days without deodorant and you would never know. I am beginning to think that its something we should have looked at.

Hi I m just looking for some advice really.. I ve noticed my son has started to sweat ALOT at bedtime when he s asleep.. He doesn t do it during the day when he has naps, he is normal temperature maybe even very slightly cold to touch but his temp is perfect. He sleeps on a vest as our house is rather warm anyway and especially with summer coming up. We have had SIDS in our family, my sister at 6 weeks old, and apparently after reading up about it sweating can be a sign of SIDS, I m absolutely terrified, Any advice would be very much appreciated, thank you.
