A few years ago (at the age of 21) I started developing quite heavy sweats that were triggered by anxiety. Whenever I even get the slightest hint of anxiety, and it really doesn't have to be a lot, my whole body burns up and I start sweating prefusely. The severity of the anxiety dictates the severity of the hot flush/sweat. I saw an endochinologist who tested my FSH, cortisol, thyroid and a couple of other things and my cortisol came back a little high (310). My cortisol levels were then-re tested 6 months later but were deemed 'okay' the second time around and I was discharged with an advisory to see a dermatologist to help with the sweating.
These sweats have never improved and my condition and health has worsened. I now suffer with depression, mood swings, zero tolerance to stress, teeth grinding constantly, dizzyness, hot flushes, dehydration and a low heat tolerance.
Thinking back a few years ago, I was a very positive, confident and laid back person who very rarely sweated even in hot conditions and now I am almost the complete opposite of that person.
I'm currently really struggling with depression and I generally dont enjoy life. I am desperate to hopefully find answers to my condition so any opinoins or information you can share with me would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for reading.
