Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis Symptoms and Causes

Hyperhidrosis, also called sweaty palm syndrome, can affect the entire body, but usually occurs in the palms, soles, armpits and/or groin area. Excessive sweating is normal when a person is anxious or has a fever. However, when the condition is chronic, hyperhidrosis may signal thyroid problems, low blood sugar, nervous system disorders or other medical problems.
