I have had alopecia universalis for 48yrs. I stopped wearing a wig 14 yrs ago, because of the self esteem issues, along with the working in an industrial labourous job. Then I was injured and stopped working. Over the last five years, I sweat to the point that I can wring my cloth,,,and lately, going hypothermic,,,and freezing, often having to get into a hot tub to rewarm myself. I feel it's auto immune related, but our canadian doctors don't want to see complicated complex patients, so I"ve been researching this, but like alopecia discoveries, I"m getting nowhere. This week the sweats were so bad, it totally saps everything I got and now I"m vomitting from fatique. To me we are totally bald, so our body temp isn't the same, fever is at a lower rate, making it difficult to show a family physician what's going on.
I know what your talking about. If I don't have my fan and air on I wake up sweating, even with my head shaved. I thought that with less hair the sweating would be less.
