    Sweat on one side

    I seem to be sweating on the right side of my body. It's weird and it's miserable. What's going on with this? PLEASE HELP!

    Are you right next to the camp fire? Sorry, couldn't resist. I think a bit more of a description is in order Rusty. Is it when you are lying down, sitting up, standing up, etc. Is there movement involved? Is it your entire right side or just the folds and dark areas? What happens at the centerline? Are there any other symtoms, itching, feeling dizzy, short of breath, ..........
    Hope it doesn't hurt. Is there a medication that you've just changed ? This one is different.
    No matter how cynical I try to be, I just can't seem to keep up with how bad things really are!

      It's a form of AD. You are likely in pain on your left. Check your left side for any redness or breakdowns, too tight shoes, clothing, cushion too low....It's a warning.

        Happens only when I'm sitting in my chair. No UTI, no pain other than the normal amount. No new meds.

          Exactly Lorrie (cute pic too!). Something is going on to give you AD. Check it out.

            Are you on ditropan? Have you reduced the dosage maybe? One of its side effects is that it dries you up.

              This is interesting because I've gotten off ditropan (for the last 3 months) and only when I have to pee do I get sweating on my right upper side. That is, inner right elbow and the back of my neck on the right. So, I believe it's AD in response to a bladder that would rather be emptied!

              The main result to getting off ditropan has seen no accidents in terms of leaking, but that I get these AD symptoms every 2 hours instead of every 4 hours. And the "feeling" that I need to go is, so far, more intense.

                  Gotta agree with Lorrie and the others that the most likely explanation is AD, especially since the one-sided sweating is only a problem when you're up in your chair. Sounds like you need to check your cushion and backside very carefully to see if there's something amiss.

                      Rusty, I have to agree with everyone, sounds like AD. I learned the hard way with ingrown toenails. I really could'nt feel it, but it was giving me all kinds of grief. Hope you figure it out soon.

                        Please what is AD. All I can think of is Alzheimer's Disease. This is new to me and I don't know the lingo yet.

                          I only sweat on my upper fourth of my body.

                            We've cut out my ingrown nails and cut-out the ends of my socks to set them free. I thought we'd cut them out fairly well but I guess the hooks were still in pretty bad. The sweat is easing but not 100 percent gone. On June 3, I get some custom made shoes from my local rehab. They cost me $617.00 - but if that sweat goes away it'll be worth it.

                              What is your blood pressure when this happens? If it is not elevated at least 30 mm. systolic over your baseline, it is not autonomic dysreflexia (AD).

                              One-sided sweating that is positional can also be association with a syrinx? Have you been evaluated for this since you started this symptom??
