Explain more than sweating

My guy is sweating so much and like I don't have enough laundry.

Another gift from PSP.

Hypothalamus. ... The hormones from the hypothalamus govern physiologic functions such as temperature regulation, thirst, hunger, sleep, mood, sex drive, and the release of other hormones within the body. This area of the brain houses the pituitary gland and other glands in the body.

Hi Dee

Yes! Its that damned Hypothalamus. It it's responsible for a lot of emotional responses too. Driven by the pesky Amygdala. Between them I was never out of work in the therapists chair. Sorry - they have dominated my working life for a long time! Between them they actually form a whole primitive thinking and interpersonal communication system too. Before we had cognitive thought and language they pretty much ran the show and they still do for more primitive brained animals. And they still react faster to danger than the 'all electric' cortex.

Erm - I'm off topic!

Liz had this as well. She felt cold easily and often sweated a lot at night.

PSP!

Wishing you well Dee.

That explains a lot. I could never understand how David could sometimes soak his sheets with sweat, yet he claimed not to be hot. But later he would be sat downstairs in midsummer and say he was cold, and I would put the heating on.

It wasn't every day though, both the sweating and the feeling cold were completely at random.

Hi Kevin_1, yes I am doing OK thanks. Ben keeping myself busy decorating the road that used to have the through floor lift in it, and returning it to its original function as a computer room and media centre 🙂

Just finished decorating it and have been busy putting all the shelving back up. It's been keeping me occupied hehe

Yes, keeping occupied is the thing.

Liz is in a nursing home now. I got rid of most of the equipment and am decorating through too.

My computer sits on the side of the dining table where the cat can jump up and lie on a folded blanket near me.

Today, instead of walking over the keyboard she discovered hitting it with her tail whilst relaxing on the blanket. She seemed very pleased with herself... moggies!

Glad your' managing OK :)

Wishing you well.

Kevin

Regarding my husband, first physician (2014) said "Def not Parkinsons" He did some kind of wrist check he called a "cogwheel test". Then a neurologist (2015) said "Def. not Parkinsons" , (also did the cogwheel test) but there's a speech apraxia and he should be seen by the Centre for Brain Aging at University of BC. The UBC neurologist (2016) said "something cortical-basal - either PSP or CBD. This summer, I think based on lack of swallowing issues, lack of occular rigidity, confirmation of alien limb, continuing loss of speech and no doubt other things, he confirmed CBD.

Really started to notice something not right in 2009 and in 2013 he had a diagnose of PSP and over the phone and was told to Google progressive superanucler palsy.

After many,many doctors 3 of which were neurologist first one put it down to maybe Parkinson's and put him on meds and pretty much gave up after a year,second had no clue, third one pretty much said Parkinson maybe psp (we had no clue what psp meant )he put him on all the Parkinson meds for one year again to rule Parkinson's out.It was difficult just getting to the Dr because we had to drive anywhere from 5 to 8 hours to see them..

Hope this makes sence
