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.
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.
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.
