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!!!

From this study (1 week ago):
Naprosyn, Vicodin, Ativan and Prilosec are taken only on an as needed basis. Some of my symptoms are intermittent, and some are chronic. The though the medications may not completely rid me of a symptom (for example, depression or muscle pain), they do improve my condition enough to warrant their continued use. I'm much better off taking them than not.
The oral issues I'm having all began around the same time in the last year. I first noticed a sensitivity for spicy food I had never experienced. I can no longer use adult toothpaste because the minty flavors are so provinces as to cause pain. The gum irritation comes and goes as does the severity of the other oral pain I experience.
My hair loss I can describe as severe as it can be without having visible bald spots. Whereas I once had unusually thick hair (a ponytail of around 1.5 inches), I have lost so much that my ponytail now measures about .5 inches.
