    I saw that someone was asking about a comment I made in a string the other day on excessive sweating. I don't know much information about this because I have the opposite problem where I hardly sweat at all even in a sauna, however, my doctor questioned me about excessive sweating and told me if I did have it it MAY be a sign of an imbalance with the brain neurotransmitter Acetocholine. I'm sorry I don't know more than that, but I know that there can be many reasons for excessive sweating. I just thought I'd mention this for people to ask their dr. how to find out if it is that. It just stuck out in my memory that he told me that for some reason. I believe it is acetocholine that causes the severe sweating people sometimes have during panic attacks. I've also heard that sometime thyroid problems can cause excessive sweating. Hope this helps . . . Sorry I don't know more . . . Terri
