    I didn't sweat for most of the years of being ill. Now, last year and especially this past summer, I'm sweating.:) I can only attribute it to several years of detox. Who knew it would feel so good to be dripping with sweat!

    I have the same thing with the head only sweating. And it is associated with a peculiar crawling sensation under my skin as if the rest of my body is trying to sweat and is unable to. But I have found that whey protein isolate gives me whole body sweating. I am still undecided as to whether this is a good or bad thing and I'm continuing to experiment. Ibuprofen also seems to help.

    Sweat abnormalities are commonly found as sudomotor dysfunction as part and parcel of having Autonomic Neuropathy, something which can be autoimmune or Diabetes related or just idiopathic.

    QSART and TST are the two Autonomic Function Tests used to check for this.

    Quantitative sudomotor axon reflex test (QSART) is used to evaluate postganglionic sympathetic cholinergic sudomotor function by measuring the axon-reflex mediated sweat response over time

    Thermoregulatory sweat testing (TST) is used to evaluate the integrity of central and peripheral sympathetic sudomotor pathways from the CNS to the cutaneous sweat glands. The core body temperature is raised by increasing the ambient room temperature which in turn raises blood and skin temperature. The degree and extent of sweat production is then visualized with an indicator dye.
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3046462/

    Sudomotor dysfunction often occurs along with having cardiac output issues (POTS, OH etc) too. A full Autonomic Function Test panel work-up checking out the cardiac side of things would also include doing a Tilt Table Test, Valsalva Manouvre and Heart Rate Variability to Deep Breathing Tests.

    Hypothyroidism can decrease sweating. Yes, this is the third time I've mentioned hypothyroidism to you regarding different symptoms you are having. You're not imagining it.:nerd:

    No not active at all. Housebound mainly bedbound though care for myself just about. I have been ill for 24 years this year. The non sweating probably started about 10 years ago. Or that's when I became aware of it. I am wondering if the whey protein is circumventing the blockage described by Fluge and Mella Ron Davis etc and that this allows me to sweat. However I have read that high-protein can cause sweating. And was also advised on here that the sweating is likely to be an allergic response to the whey protein! I feel that when I manage to sweat it does me good.
    My own feeling is that my body wants to sweat due to autonomic temperature control issues but that some kind of vascular or cellular problem prevents it.
