Post Very Diaphoretic (Profuse sweating)
Recently my husband has had episodes of severe sweating. His clothes will be wet from it. At first I thought he was incontinent but the Depends were still dry so I realized he was very diaphoretic. No pain or any other complaint at the same time. Has anyone else seen this or heard of it? AnneN

Hi Anne, Yes, my husband has been sweating profusely, especially at night. I did read that this is from LBD but was not familiar with the terminology.

It makes sense.... the brain just cannot regulate the body's processes anymore. For my man it's drastic changes in blood pressure, constant runny nose, occasional urinary accidents and vertigo. -- Also changes in body temperature.

The term is Autonomic Functions. The Lewy Bodies get tint the area of the brain that controls these involuntary functions and they malfunction. Constipation, vision, body temperature, blood pressure, need to urinate, all are effected. I have most of these including the loss of control of body temperature. Any exertion causes me to sweat buckets. Then, at the blink of an eye, I am cold. Nothing changed in the room, just how I react to it.
