Searching for someone who had the same sweating symptoms I had and I was directed to this site. Finally someone like me. I started suffering a couple of years ago from severe sweating from my head. It feels like tiny holes in my head open up and start to drip profusely as if someone just turned on a faucet, and this continues on for an hour. I can stop what I'm doing and sit in front of a fan but it gives me little if any relief. These are not hot flashes even though I was put on hormones a year ago which helped for the hot flashes I was having along with these torrents. The craziest things set them off, basic house hold chores, curling my hair, putting on make-up, and grocery shopping just as I'm getting to the check-out. I hate carrying around the small white towel but with out it I'm a mess. I'm also an eye glass wearer and they get fogged up each time. Is there any help out there?
