Sweats Several Times A Day

Sweats Several Times A Day

cause the terrible sweats?

Yes, excessive sweating called hyperhydrosis, is one of the many symptoms you can have with PD. I live in FL and get drenched just working in my garden! But I also have periods when I am freezing cold and just can’t get warm. PD has an effect on the autonomic nervous system which can cause these symptoms. Hope you will spend some time on the MJFox webinars. You learn so many things about your disease that your neurologist doesn’t tell you or have the time to explain.

Another indicator I must accept my diagnosis.

In the past I had night sweats. I’m guessing it was a reaction to a new drug that my body was trying to adjust to. If I look into it and find what was going on in my case, I’ll pass it along.
