EarthMother Posted April 22, 2009 Report Share Posted April 22, 2009 As I was reading a post tonight about the effects of the Sun and POTS symptoms, it struck me how many folks said they didn't sweat.I've never had any of the fancy vandy tests, like the sweat test. But I certainly have noticed a dramatic change in my body's sweat response. When I was younger I sweat like a pig ... well you know what I mean. But in the last few years, I've stopped wearing deodorant. I just don't seem to sweat anymore. I guess I thought it was because I don't do much anymore either. But now that I think of it, I don't tend to sweat when I'm outside in the sun either. Not like I use to.I carry around a little water mister bottle and am continually spraying myself to feel cool. (My dog thinks this is a fun game ---- EEEEEEW!)Other than nightsweats, when I can still soak through all the covers, my body doesn't seem to perspire at all.Is this part of autonomic dysfunction?
