What Is The Sweating Disease?

The sweating disease is a condition which causes excessive perspiration. It can affect up to one in seven men and women, although it’s more common in women. Sweating occurs when the body tries to cool itself down by producing excessive amounts of sweat. It needs to be able to regulate its temperature effectively, so that it doesn’t get too hot or too cold depending on outside temperatures. People with this condition notice that they sweat more than normal people do at any given time during the day and night, especially if their outdoor temperature is low. There are two types of sweating: primary and secondary (or familial). Primary sweating affects around 40% of all cases while secondary involves 30% of sufferers; some individuals may have both forms or neither form at all.) Primary symptoms include:

o Hyperhidrosis — Excessive and uncontrollable underarm and/or facial perspiration o Night sweats — Sleep-related episodes of intense night sweats o Submandibular hypertrophy — Enlargement of the submandibular lymph node leading from the lower jaw into the neck This enlargement usually appears on both sides bilaterally without regard for gender but unilateral (one side) predominance has been reported (Janson et al., 1992) .

Secondary symptoms include increased release of hormones such as cortisol, adrenaline and noradrenaline which actually increase blood pressure levels. These elevated blood pressures can cause headaches, dizziness or even fainting/
