I have come here as a last resort to try and find answers or at the very best what other people have done. As long as I can remember I could sweat a good deal even in winter. In my 20's it was very obvious that I would sweat (naturally with exercise) and just being out in the sun. In my middle to late 40's I was diagnosed with Atrial Fib. I have had an ablation and it is conrolled with a Beta Blocker. I know that this med can cause sweating in general. Over the course of the last 4 years it has become progressively worse. It is so bad that if I just stand in the sun or be in a room with no air cirriculating, I break out into a rolling, drenching sweat. My thyroid has been checked and my hormones levels and normal. I am not in pre, or menopause. The first place that it starts is my forehead and at the hair lines. I can literally feel is pouring off my face. My neck then starts and in a few minutes I feel like I have stepped out of a sauna. I have even gone to and Endo doc and currently using Metformin. My blood sugars are not really high. Mostly between 80 and 95 with some occasion 120. I am overweight and I have lost almost 20 lbs and working on more.
It is so bad that I really don't enjoy going to social events, job interviews, or each day when I go to work it is a challenge as to what to wear. Sleeveless in the summer and winter. I practically wear nothing at home and I still can break out in a horrible sweat just doing the dishes. I drink water, but I am not thirsty. I can also see some flushing in my face, neck and arms. Some spots will be burning hot while the surrounding area is cool to the touch.
Does anyone else have this problem. I am really feeling like a freak because I don't know of anyone else who does this and no doctor can find out what this is. I keep being told...this is just how I am.....and are you in menopause.
I don't fix my hair because if 5 minutes it can be wet, no makeup for I sweat it off. I have also used creams that are supposed to help, but do not. I am really at the end of my sanity with this. Can anyone help me? Thanks for letting me rant. Have a great day. :)
