Intense sweating for 7 months...need advice!

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi! this is my first time posting here. Hopefully someone out there has some suggestions. Ive always dealt with excessive sweating under my arms. The past seven months it has encompassed my entire body, particularly between my thighs. My underwear is soaked and this leads to bad rashes.

If i skip a meal, I'm prone to feeling shaky, nervous, dizzy, and extremely hungry.

Ive noticed in the past two to three months that any moderate movement (walking fast to catch a bus, walking up stairs) causes me to get very flushed and my chest hurts.

Im a 26 year old male. my current medications are lexapro and buspar. im being treated for a pituitary microadenoma.

My endocrenologist has ruled out diabetes and thyroid abnormalities (asode from adenoma)

i dont know if any of these symptoms are related. Id just like to see if anyone else is experiencing similar symptoms or has any experience with this.

Thank you!

    Don't freak out from me saying this but i would have your dr check your liver function as extreme sweating can be a sign of fatty liver disease.

      I was diagnosed with fatty liver awhile ago but I don't think I'm being treated for it....I'm going to ask my doctor about this. Thank you for your comment!

    Hi ryan24351

    Have you checked the 'Information Leaflet' that came with your medication. If not check for side effects which may mention sweating...

    It might be the problems you are having with your pituitary gland and the medications you are taking for it. This gland controls a lot in your body.
