Am I The Only One


Recommended Posts

sweating is under the control of the autonomic nervous system so many with ANS diagnoses have issues with sweating too much or too little. some autonomic testing actually focuses on the body's control of sweating in various capacities.

personally my extremities don't sweat at all other than in extreme situations (i.e. when i have a fever over 104). on a day to day basis, with hot weather, etc only my trunk sweats. i've had testing done showing this odd pattern in me...technically called hypohydrosis (reduced sweating) & or anhydrosis (no sweating). and while not sweating may sound appealing, it's not really a good thing as it can cause major problems with body temperature regulation so i wouldn't recommend it.

i know others on the forum have discussed problems with sweating too much (hyperhydrosis), whether in the middle of the night or in general.

last but not least, though, i do know that sweaty palms aren't an uncommon thing in the general population, so i wouldn't get too worried about it. it may or may not be a part of your ANS issues.

hope this helps,
