r_innes Posted October 26, 2005 Report Share Posted October 26, 2005 I am a 28 yo female who has been sick for 8 years.I started out noticing that I'd sweat more with only slight exertion. A few months later, I got pregnant and that is when the real fun started. Since then, I have been unable to shower without sweating...and I am a clean freak, that kills me. I was diagnosed with idiopathic tachycardia, anxiety, and even tried on hormone therapy.Finally, I made it to the Rochester Mayo Clinic. Had a sweat test, and a TTT. The TTT showed that my body overcomps for the drop in blood pressure by upping my heart rate. It works...I have never fainted, etc. But it comes at the cost of regulating my body temp; I am like a house with the thermostat set too high. It gets a little warm, I sweat. I get a little exerted, I sweat. And sometimes, I just sweat.Am I alone?r_innes Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
