Anyone else just sweat profusely? I don't mean when exerting oneself. I mean when you get excited or nervous or angry. When you're in pain. When you get out of the shower, no matter how cold. When you're getting ready to go out. Etc. And I specifically sweat on my face. Anyone? Bueller?

      You actually might want to check your prescriptions for sweating side effects-- I know one of mine has it as a potential side effect and I had never seen it before!

      🙋🏻‍♀️ I always have sweaty hands and feet even when I’m cold. And I sweat overall very easily. Especially when anxious, but that’s not even always the case.

      Oh absolutely. And specifically my right armpit. Anger, excitement, anxiety, you name it.

      Limiting caffeine intake and sugars helps a lot

      So this is actually a condition called hyperhidrosis. Some people have primary (normal medical condition) while some people have secondary (brought on by another condition or a medication). Either way, you will want to seek a dermatologist for this. They may prescribe something or have you try topicals.

      Uhhhhh... O.O dude... I sweat when I'm nervous and angry and sometimes when I wake up. My eyes sweat sometimes when I wake up.

      I hate taking showers because I sweat like crazy afterwards! I've also started sweating excessively after I eat. It's annoying!

        @AudaCity I had this problem when taking SSRIs. My head specifically would sweat. Meds, what a help but what a challenge.

      I sweat for no reason. Im consistently take off the shirt put on a tank then I get cold. I'm not going threw menopause did that already. Are u maybe in pre menopause? All u have to do is get a blood test.

        @Aurora137 oh gosh, that hadn't crossed my mind. But I'll definitely do the blood test!
