Subject is now 33, has been having hot flash since 8 years old. Always thought, and told by doctors it was sweating caused by anxiety that would fade away.
But the sympton; an intense feeling of heat, resulting in entire body being covered by a thick layer of slime-like sweat giving the appearance of having emerged from a swimming pool, is no ordinary sweating.

Subject also has had APD or ADD since birth, and Scheurmann's Kyphosis, all not picked up on by doctors.

  • Maybe but this started before cell phones, digital media or the internet. The VCR was the most technological thing he was exposed to. It started while playing sports at school, at 8; an age where sweating is unusual, The other kids noticed and used to ask him why he sweated but he didn't know. It started being an every day occurence by the mid-teens. When you have it, does it drench your clothes so bad so you look like you have been hiking through a swamp, drip onto the keboard when u are using a keyboard, or get into ur eyes while doing DIY or gardening so u have to constantly drop what u are doing to rub ur eyes?
