  • From this study (4 weeks ago):

  • Heat over 65 degrees, any type of activity, house cleaning, walking. etc. In a hurry, stress. This is so embarrassing. My hair becomes wet, sweat drips from my face and neck. People think I am nuts or coming off of drugs. has limited my activities due to embarrassment or can't stay dry enough to fix my hair. I have stopped wearing makeup all together as it just runs down my face. My Dr. will not listen to me. I think she believes I may "glisten" a little. I need help. Please!!!

    Hello: I work for one neuro-oncologist by doing research, and become interested in investigating a "casual" relationship between severe head Perspiration with brain tumor. This is because one recent patient presented the same complaint to us and was found to have brain tumor. This Perspiration symptom, over 1 year, disappears after tumor was surgically removed.

    I am not saying that you may have brain lesion, better do some further investigation include brain MRI. Some of the symptoms you mentioned could indicate some brain problem. Are you live in US? you can contact me if you like.

    I am not practicing physician, but if you like to see my supervisor, neuro-oncologist, in Houston, I can arrange.

    Thank you. Greg
