Hyperhidrosis research: An online focus group discussion

Thanks to Paul Kamudoni for letting me know about work being done at the Welsh school of pharmacy, Cardiff University,  to develop a patient-centred instrument (measure) for assessing the quality of life of hyperhidrosis patients. He commented on an earlier post, and I have copied his note to make sure it gets some notice:

An online focus group discussion will be conducted to discuss the impact of hyperhidrosis on everyday life of patients. 

If you are interested in sharing your experiences please contact Paul Kamudoni using the following address

Thanks again, Paul. I would like to participate if it is not too late. For those of you on the fence, this type of research is important in convincing insurance companies to cover hyperhidrosis treatments. In addition, this kind of assessment is needed so that health professionals can take the problem more seriously. Because wiping your wet palms on your pants is NOT treatment. Hyperhidrosis affects the quality of our lives.

Is it alright if you elaborate as much for hyperhidrosis? I would like to know more about it and I'm quite interested in helping you with this cause. I just think I need some more info back up anyway.

Fix it for free, safely & for good! Sweaty hands (except when exercising) are caused by the sympathetic autonomic nervous system (ANS). There are two branches to the ANS sympathetic (fight/flight) and para-sympathetic (feed/breed). Notice when you are stressed or nervous the symptoms are worse? Manage stress by reprogramming your ANS. Chiropractic adjustments, breathing exercises, and visualizations will do that for you. Watch my videos to learn more. Youtube search drekberg.

What people don't realize about hyperhidrosis is that it is more than just having sweaty hands and feet-- it literally hurts you confidence, which translates into ever area of life. I hope you are doing better, Tiara.

I hate HH! It has such a negative impact on me! It lowers my self confidence 100 times lower. Highschool isn't easy & on top of it having this. I try so hard to avoid situations that involve hand contact or touching. Its so hard for me to use my phone.. because its touch screen, my excessive sweatiness blocks me from a lot of things. I seriously don't know what to do. I used this treatment a doctor subscribed me but it didn't work and made it worse. How can I get through this?

There are people out there who all feel this same... THIS IS ANAZING! All the doctors think they know what we go through when they have absolutely noooo idea! I have tried a homemade iontophoresis Machine and unfortunately for me it did nothing.
The risk is definitely not worth it for the ets surgery... So fingers crossed for Botox!!
