Facial Sweating

Facial Sweating

Facial sweating is destroying my confidence to go to work, it's not classed as a disability and i have to endure working while sweat is actually dripping from my face, my hair looks like i've been swimming.

My sweating always comes with overheating. Especially my head/face. But still no diagnosis any ideas anyone?

My sweating always comes with overheating. Especially my head/face. But still no diagnosis any ideas anyone?

I get hot flashes continuously, which always comes with going red and sweating so bad my clothes soak in minutes. If it's chilly outside steam will actually come off my head. Been tested for so many things and seen soo many doctors who have all given up on me even though they've seen it. My head and face are the worst though. It's a constant drip, it's ridiculous. I hate leaving my house. Anyone deal… read more

How do get an IV for dehydration!

How do get an IV for dehydration!

I've been struggling with getting a doctor to put it on file that I get dehydrated at very fast rate, particularly during any change in season. Yet, when I go in, they won't give me essential fluids unless I have some other sickness or malady. I wouldn't get sick as often if I was properly hydrated. Any suggestions or information welcome, I'm in WA for reference.
