Post Cold Sweats
My mom has been getting the cold sweats lately. We notice these after she eats at night (not with her much during the day). She will be sitting there shortly eating and all of a sudden her face is dripping. I took a lukewarm wash cloth today and wiped her face and upper body which seemed to make her feel better and she fell asleep. She can barely talk now so hard to ask her what is bother her. Any ideas?

Many people with LBD seem to have a decreased ability for normal temperature regulation. For my dad, he was almost always freezing cold, even in the hot, humid MD weather. He'd want a sweater and hat on when it was in the 90s if I took him outside. Could be something like that is going on, and you just have to adjust their clothing, bedding, heat and A/C in their room.

My husband usually has cold hands and the right hand is always colder than the left.

Thanks for your input, appreciate it - always trying to make life more comfortable for mom but just can't quite figure out what is happening but hey, things change with her like the wind sometimes. Thanks again
