anhidrosis

Posted by lee64 @lee64, Apr 16, 2012

Hi, I have stopped sweating and i am overheating from any activity that would normally make me sweat. I am 47 yrs old and have worked out all my life and always perspired. all my blood work has so far come up normal. can anyone please guide me what to do next. I feel like the doctors think i`m crazy or i`m just not working hard enough to sweat. my face and especially my eyes swell up and i get white bumps all over my neck shoulders and arms( haven really looked at the rest of my body) i feel like i ran 10 miles if i just walk for 5 minutes in 70` weather,,

This happened to me. I can only tell you about my experience. I am wondering if you are male or female. This could make a difference. I am a woman. I was finally diagnosed with Sjogrens Syndrome. This usually strikes women but men can have it also although much less frequent. Dry eyes? Dry mouth? Burning tongue? Joint pain? Severe fatigue or should I say severe weakness? Just feeling not yourself. I know there is a specific diagnosis for anhidrosis but I wanted to run this by you. Good Luck.

I was sent to Mayo clinic in May 2018. I was diagnosed with Chronic Idiopathic Anhidrosis with Compensatory Hyperhidrosis.. followed by hypothermia. Is what you have?

Hi, @weasel70 – apologies for the delay, but wanted to welcome you to Mayo Clinic Connect. Wondering if you could share more about your diagnosis? I'm familiar with hyperhidrosis, but not anhidrosis and compensatory hyperhidrosis. You also mentioned hypothermia. Was this from an incident in the outside?
