"One of the things I have read through my research on parkinson's disease is that many people don't talk about excessive perspiration or just dismisse it not realizing it is associated to the disease.
When I was first diagnoised last year that was a symptom. It has gotten worse. Any activity, like combing my hair, applying make-up, making up a bed, causes me to sweat. I have to stop in between task to sit down and take a break. This goes on mostly in the morning hours. I love coffee, and I had to cut back because I think it contribes to the sweating. It's a very frustrating feeling."
Up to 64% of people with Parkinson's have excessive perspiration, associated with other features of autonomic dysfunction
