Conditions with symptom: 'unsteady hands'
I have a balance problem due to being ill with septasemia and being given an antibiotic gentamicin my balance has improved but still unsteady will it ever get back to normal. I'm 68 years old and have had this problem since December 15.
im 14 and for a year now i always seem to have sweaty hands i went to the doctors and they gave me a rolling thing to put over my hands but this just dried it up and made my hands sore, my armpits and feet always get hot to im terrified of injections what else can its sooooo embarrassing??
Speaking from experience it is unlikely you have a long term medical problem given that it has only started one year ago. Speak to the doctor about the Iontopheresis treatment it sounds more appropriate. Mind you after the treatment the saliva in your mouth dries up so I would recommend some oily foods to eat.
Im EXACTLY the same, i get sweaty hands feet and armpits! i went to the ddoctors and they also gave me a rolling thing to roll over my hands, when i put it on my hands dry up but they go all wrinkly and dont stay dry for that long! when i have to do dancing with boys in P.E its embaressing because i have to explain the problem! PLEASE can someone help me find a cure for this, i hate it and i dont want to have it for any longer! :(
I suffered with Otitis externa approx a year ago, gp gave me antibiotic drops. First time this didn't help, it came back the following month so I just used the drops again, Anyway that seemed to have worked for a few months I still had itchy irritated ears but I coped with it. Now 6 months later I have gone deaf in my left ear and have been for 5 days now, It is making feel generally unwell, dizzy and my balance is pretty unsteady. Please Help!
If your ears are blocked then the antibiotic drops can't get in to fix the infections properly. Syringing infected ears or ears with underlying eczema can cause damage, so your ears need to be cleared by microsuction prior to treatment with the drops. I lost patience after 4 years of GPs being less than useful and I went privately to an ENT nurse. Microsuction and a prescription cost me £68 but the result is sharp hearing and no pain or itching. Your GP can refer you for this treatment on the NHS and it would be best to try for that before taking the private route, but, as I say, I had lost patience. If there is an underlying condition then treatment will have to be repeated and so the cost of going privately will add up. In the meantime, keep your ears dry and try not to scratch them. I am well aware that not scratching them is almost impossible, but try.
I have been informed of my having Dupuytren`s Contracture by my GP (2012), in both hands this giving me three years in which I`d lose use of both hands. Two others in the family (both Females)also have this condition. My question yet unanswered by anybody is: Why are my hands/fingers being effected in the exact opposite to that of Dupuytren`s? I am unable to bend my fingers so Why is this so, and is it possible that my hands are being effected by two conditions at the same time the second being Carpel Tunnel Syndrome? If so, what treatments are available and what are the prospects of regaining full use of my fingers?
I have dupthrens and going to have surgery to have the facia removed.yes you can have it in both hands usally.from the ring finger to pinky.but do not have the needle down it dosent help had it done on the left hand.and.carpel tunnel has a lot to do with it. The needle is just a tempery fix but even after surgery.it can still come back. Oh this can.even go.to your feet the toes

I dont go out much now as am ashamed. And when i do i have to wear long sleeve tops. I am 44 and female does anyone else have this problem or perhaps a solution.

hey i have the same problem try garlic capsules tablets as garlic helps the blood flow (so I'm told) but if that doesnt work get a pair of fingerless gloves they will cover your hands and look stylish to.
Hi, i sweat quite a lot mainly from my hands and sometimes feet, i brought an iontonphrosis machine last year but never really got around to using it properly, is this type of treatment ok for use on the hands?
Im 22 and I think raynaulds is something I may have. I have always suffered with freezing ice cold hands, feet, nose! My boyfriend flinches if i touch him because my hands are so cold! They are like this mostly everyday and the only way I can keep warm is if we have the heating on a million degrees which then means he is very hot! I've been to the doctors and I have had thyroid tests (through blood test at dr's) and a diabetes test. Of which both are fine I dont have diabetes. My doctor didnt refer me to anyone else but then I didnt go back in. Another dr mentioned this to me as what it could be. I had to go back to the doctors for something else but I saw the original dr who did the tests, so I mentioned it to her. She said that she didnt think it could be that because my hands are freezing but they are also clammy (which is true). She said with raynaulds you dont get clammy hands. So my hands and feet are freezing ice cold and clammy. Does anyone with raynaulds find their hands clammy and cold? I really want to find an answer to this any advice would be great! or what specialist I may need to see!
yes i suffer with it too it is horrid it has taken my right hand no and i cant get get a feeler they look at my body it is horrid i need help
I was diagnosed with Rynauds 3 years ago, I also get clammy hands and the doctors have said this is because my hands think they are warm when actually they are not.
I am 17 and have had eczema for years on my arms, legs and face. Recently i have been getting it on my hands and have developed small sists on the palm of my hand and under my nails. When they burst they are very painful and sting. My hands crack quite badly and bleed too. My hands are worse in the summer. I've tried steroid creams and other creams but they all seem to make the sists worse. What new things can i try? Could it not be eczema?
hi i'm 14 and i suffer from excess sweating on my hands feet and armpits. Im really self concious about it. if someone takes my hand at school they immediatly let go of it and say "ew your hands are sweaty" which starts to get old real quick. i always have to wear sleavless tops and even then im constantly checking to see if ive got sweat patches. it's taken away all my confidence and it even stops me from being able to do school work, the pencils slip through my hands and if im doing practical work in tech my hands get blisters from having to grip the handles so tight so they dont slip. i feel like its stopping me from living my life properly and i dont know what to do about it! my mum wont listen to me, she says its nothing big and im just making a fuss over nothing. ive tried loads of anti-perspirants for my arms but none of them work, im constantly washing my hands hoping it will help, ive even tred deep breathing and self-hypnosis! i honestly dont know what else to do and its starting to really get to me. i cant try botox because my mum wouldnt let me. if anyone knows any non-surgical ways to stop it i would really appreciate it! please help, im desperate!
Hi I suffer from the same things as you and I agree it is very difficult to live with at times. For your feet I recommend wearing shoes as little as possible. I tend to take mine off when I am at work, people found this strange at first but now I see lots of people doing it! For your armpits try going to the chemist and buying something with Aluminium chloride - Anhydrol Forte or Dryclor are both very good. This stuff is very strong so use it sparingly at first until you get used to it. Last thing at night clean under your arms then apply a small amount of it, then wash it off in the morning and use ordinary antiperspirant. You should start with every 3-4 days and eventually you should only need to use it once a week, it worked wonders for me! Hope you get it sorted out!
Hi am 15. I kind of have the same thing as you as my hands and feet always sweat but yet my feet are always freezing cold. I have had it through out my whole life so I am kind of used to it now, but I totally understand what your going through. I have spoke to my consultant about this and he really doesnt take much notice so I don;t know of any way to stop it. It is a shame really because it gets me down a lot, aspecially because I do dance at school which means I am constantly wiping my hands and scared of making hand contact with people.
