For the last few years I have been perspiring much more than the average person. When out at a nightclub or even during the day I have visible seat patches which can be embarassing. I drink fair amount of water though feel dehyrdated most of the time. I also suffer from anxiety (social anxiety disorder) though sweat even when I am not feeling symptoms.

  • I have had that same experience, always sweating and drinking more water but feeling dehydrated nontheless. It was also suggested that I have some sort of social disorder/phobia, but I always felt that was only a function of how bad I sweat/smelled. Really, who wants to be in public when they feel wet and gross?Anyway, LONG story short - and several symptoms later - I found out I had a food intolerence. The sweating went to a normal level DAYS after I stopped eating wheat/rye/barley products. It fixed my social anxiety more or less, and cured a really long list of symptoms that developed later on. Definately worth checking out, it sounds like your body is stressed by something inside of it!

  • An allergy is quite different than intolerence. Allergy would give you symptoms like hives, toubled breathing, shock, and rapid heartbeat - shortly after ingestion.Intolerence shows itself more vaguely in chronic conditions that seem to just be a part of normal life: sweating, fatigue, cramps, diarrhea/constipation, nausea, low vitamin levels, anxiety, disorientation, bloating, and rapid weight change. Unfortunately, there are few good tests for intolerence. ELISA I think is the name of the blood test that looks for antibodies to a certain enzyme in gluten. For non-gluten food intolerences, I don't know anything about the testing or if a doctor even considers it.The test for leaky gut syndrome is pretty available. Its related to the issue of food intolerences.
