For as long as I can remember, right back to childhood, I have suffered the embarrassment of excessive sweating. At first it was mainly my hands and feet but, on reaching puberty, I began to experience severe perspiration in my under-arms and groin too. The one saving grace was that, even in extreme temperatures, my face and head would still be bone dry so, at least to some extent, I was able to hide my problem. At 50, as well as being menopausal, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and began to experience extreme facial sweating, which I find embarrassing beyond belief. There's no hiding it and, having been a sun-worshiper my whole life, now I absolutely dread the approach of warmer weather. I would add that, whereas my other sweating seems to be mainly down to anxiety, the facial sweating is definitely only triggered by heat and exertion. I do also have thyroid problems, which started around the same time. Has anyone else experienced a move in the site of their perspiration problems from one area to another? I would add that, whilst I do still suffer hyperhidrosis all over, I would say that, with the onset of the facial sweating, my hands and palms became just a little dryer. I'm curious whether others have had any similar experiences.
