Excessive sweating maybe pregnantHi,
I hae suffered excessive sweating since my last pregnancy 4 years ago. I am now trying for a baby once again, and because of that I do not want to use aluminium antiperspirants for fear of toxicity.
I am on 100mg Thyroxine daily even though my Thyroid tests comes back normal each time, my GP prescribed it and it has given me more energy.
I am also trying to treat left facial palsy from an operation to remove a tumour (parotidectomy) which had to remove my facial nerve too. I am taking 30c Hypericum in the morning and 30c Causticum at night. These seemed to stimulate my nerve a lot, but because I'm intollerant to lactose i take sucrose pills and my teeth became on edge if I did not brush my teeth before bed, but the Causticum worked better if I took it as I was falling asleep.
I am also looking for the best homeopathy to support my hypothyroidism, as I am still very tired and overweight.
The sweating is fine when I am at home or at night, it just comes on when I leave the house or at home if I am stressed or anxious about something. It is profuse and smells like onions or sometimes curry powder. It feels cold and clammy and makes me feel very uncomfortable and embarrassed.
The smell won't come out of clothes and as soon as I sweat again the smell comes back out of my tops.
I am also trying to get pregnant so I do not want to harm the baby - are there any homeopathic treatments I should avoid?
I am also being treated for high blood pressure brought on by polycystic kidney disease with 4mg perindopril, which will change to Methyldopa if I become pregnant.
I am about 2 stones overweight, and eat a healthy diet except I must stop eating sugar. Oherwise a little meat whole grains and vegetables make up my diet.
I often can't fall asleep at night and only by moving to the spare bed do I fall asleep which is a bother with my partner.
I get exhausted by around 4pm with my eyes especially feeling tired, and I just feel everytrhing is too much by 6pm sometimes.
Before my last pregnancy I was very slim and used to smoke. now I do not drink or smoke.
I am a housewife and get lots of support from my partner.
Many thanks for your help.
