My husband has multiple issues that no one can seem to find the reason for any! He does not sweat like a "normal" person! Never breaks a sweat in extream heat, yet it does not seem to bother him! Hands and feet do sweat at times but never the upper body! (Face) He also can not tolerate the air conditioning/cold tempatures, and we live in the deep south where it is HOT! He sleeps in a room that has NO air and will at times sleep with a heater. If he is in the air conditioning, he will complain of lower right side back pain, and pain in the right side groin area. I am at wits end since this all seems to affect his ability to sleep and function as a normal person, which also puts a strain on the marriage!

Seems to be tired alot. Blood tests show nothing other then high triglycerides. CAT scan...nothing. Ultra Sound...nothing. IVP...nothing. MRI...nothing!

  • The sweating itself isn't a problem. I don't sweat like a normal person either, and it causes no problems. I don't sweat in extreme heat and my body cools itself down quite easily without it. Other than that, check out diet. Sometimes a vitamin deficiency can cause problems like tiredness and join pain.
