I have been suffering for about 5 months with intense sweating attacks. It mostly happens to my face, head, and neck, but also sometimes it is all over. I'm talking buckets of soaking sweat. This is making me feel embarrssed, b/c they occur at anytime, anyplace, w/o warning. The Dr.'s have no idea what is causing this. they have scheduled my to see a Nephrologist to be tested fr Phaeochromocytosis and to see a Hematologist for various tests. Bottom line they don't know. Meanwhile I'm suffering daily. The slightest activity is a total chore b/c I'll end up saturated in sweat. Does nyone know what this could be?? Pease help. Thank you, Rachel D.
