Dear,thanks for query.the information provided is too little.Fainting after excessive sweating could be due to loss of salt in sweat.Ask him to avoid only water,instead take lemon juice,any fruit juice,soups etc.Avoid going our in extreme heat conditions.Bye.

I had most of my thyroid removed and never was given any meds about ten years ago. Now I am experiencing hot sweats, flushing, headache, ibs, tiredness and hyperisem. It s like my body went haywire. My dr. Is keying in on ibs which I have had in the past with periods and when I had a gall bladder full of stones. After that was removed I got occasional diarrhea. After I had the flu last summer I seemed to have had ibs more often. Within the last few days I have been having diarrhea every morning when I drink water. This is when I got the other symptoms mentioned above. Would a thyroid replacement help?

Hi there. I m not used to drink too much water. I often drink 1 or 2 glasses of water some days a week, but every time I drink water I feel the urging need to urinate, and by urging, I really mean it!! The same happens with coffee... The urine is clear and odorless. I assume it s OK, but it s really annoying to go to the bathroom every 10 to 15 minutes right after drink water... I just wanna know if this is normal or I should see a doctor. Thanks in advance.

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.
