Reply To: GBS and sweating

My CIDP triggered by decades of misdiagnosed Lyme Disease has caused profuse sweating mostly from my head. The purpose of sweating is to cool the body by evaporation but this can’t happen if there is a 100-degree waterfall coming off your forehead!

I suspect that the nerves which activate the sweat glands are damaged and are unable to shut off the faucet.

In the summer I sleep with a/c so my head is cool and then turn on my electric blanket b/c my legs are cold. I kid you not. I have been doing this for decades.
