Even bacterial pneumonias may get better without treatment, but will often respond more quickly with treatment with an appropriate antibiotic. ...Read more

I am 36 years old I had my partial Hysterectomy at 33. I am having hot flashes, clammy skin, fatigue, vaginal dryness, mood swings. Perimenopause?

Possible: What exactly was removed? Just the uterus and cervix? Was one or both ovaries left? Sometimes even if the ovaries are left the blood supply is compromised somewhat from dividing the blood supply to the uterus. See your provider for blood work to determine if you might be in menopause or premenopause. This would mean blood work. ...Read more

A Cold from 2 weeks ago turned into a productive cough, shortness of breath, night sweats, headache, clammy skin, no fever. Is it bronchitis?

Or pneumonia?: Do you have a cool mist humidifier? Fill it with one bottle of hydrogen peroxide, and two bottles of water. That will give you a 1% aerosolized mist of hydrogen peroxide. The peroxide kills the bugs on contact (virus or bacteria) as you breath in the mist, and breaks down into water and oxygen. You should feel better in a day or two. ...Read more

Anything to cure clammy hands (increase circulation?)?

Anything to cure clammy hands (increase circulation?)?

Ca or alpha blocker.: This can be due to circulation difficulty, or it might be a symptom of hypothyroidism or vasculitis.

Experienced a wave of anxiety the last few weeks and now that im more calm I have frequent mild sweaty or clammy hands. Normal?

Not unusual, but: Normal? No. You're fortunate to be past the wave, but even these milder anxiety symptoms are just that - not terrible, but not normal. You can probably learn how to lessen them or avoid them in CBT therapy or meditation. It doesn't seem severe enough to risk Rx side effects, but some Dr's may suggest that. Think hard before you do that. Best wishes! ...Read more

My mother has clammy hands. What does this mean?

Clammy hands: Sweaty palms can be completely normal, the product of stress or worry. When they are constantly clammy, regardless of situation, weather or stress level, it may be due to hyperhidrosis. This condition is one of overactive nerve impulses causing sweaty palms, soles and underarms. It can be very isolating, and many people never get diagnosed. If it concerns her, have her see her dermatologist. ...Read more

Would clammy hands and feet be because of my thyroid? My hands and feet also get really cold sometimes. Would this also be thyroid related?

Would clammy hands and feet be because of my thyroid? My hands and feet also get really cold sometimes. Would this also be thyroid related?

Can be, check w/ Dr.: The thyroid controls the thermoregulation of the body, so often when people have cold hands and feet in the dead of summer, that's a tip off! However, other things must be taken into account as well. You have a history of thyroid cancer, headache, and thyroidectomy. So make sure your thyroid panel is evaluated carefully by your doctor, and levothyroxine is optimized. ...Read more
