Cold clammies (sweating)

I have days when I cannot get rid of the cold clammies. My skin is cold and wet even though the room temperature is normal. I cannot relate this to missed meds or activity. Does anyone have any ideas? It's probably the autonomic side of Parkinson's but PD meds don't seem to help.

Are you drinking enough water?

That is definitely a problem. Why would dehydration lead to sweating??

It was just a guess based on my own experience. Many years ago I had a problem with my body-temperature regulation. I couldn't tolerate cold or heat. Sometimes I would get dizzy and break out in a cold sweat. After suffering with it for a long long time, I learned that it was due to dehydration. What I experienced may be different than what you are experiencing, but I thought it might be worth a try.

Smile Re: Cold clammies (sweating)

Many thanks for your reply. I'm sure dehydration IS a problem for me and maybe this is the push I need to drink more water! I've heard all the tricks, but somehow still don't drink half of what anyone should, let alone someone with PD.
