Someone please help. For the past couple of years I have been sweating excessively upon any exertion. I can be in a room with a hundred people all doing the same thing and I will be the only one literally dripping with sweat. It starts on my scalp and progresses to the rest of my body until I am drenched. It is extremely embarrasing and strangers ask me if I am all right. My internist thinks it might be Hyperhydrosis, but the Hyperhydrosis Society says the symptoms are not that since it usually begins earlier in life. I know I am not the only person affected like this since I saw an article in the newspaper regarding the same question. No one seems to have an answer. My next appointment is with an Endocrinologist and I am hoping I will get the right diagnosis. If someone on this website has a similar problem I would love a reply. My e-mail is jnag912@yahoo.com
