    i got the botox injections done today for the excessive underarm sweating due to what i believe to have hyperhydrosis.
    i know a lot of you guys are going through this (hyperhydrosis) so i thought i'd share.
    according to the dr, he's been seeing a significant increase of his patience being men of large muscle mass, we're just walking like furnaces.
    quite a few women do it just because supposedly it's unladylike to sweat especially in the arm pit area.

    i currently work in a corporate environment and at times during the day i'll start sweating especially under may armpits for no apparent reason, just drips of sweat trickling down my sides.
    at times it can be embarrassing when being a presenter during board meetings and your entire armpit area on your shirt has a nice wet spot patch.

    the injections where done this morning (1/13) and up till this very point i have not have one single drip of sweat coming from my armpits.
    what's awesome about this is that i still smell fresh as if i just stepped out of the shower and this is with no arm deodorant.

    i wish i could've done this sooner.

    pros:
    most if not all the armpit sweating stops
    no stinky smells due to arm pit sweating
    no discoloration of shirts in the arm pit area
    save money on the dry cleaning bill
    fda approved so it's fully covered by my insurance

    cons:
    being stuck with the syringe about 10xs per armpit does hurt a bit
    it's not permanent, this treatment will last at the most 6 months +/-, go back and get treated again
    after the injection, no physical activity such as the gym for 48 hours.

    usually i'm in a pool of sweat when im in the gym.
    so i'll see how things go this friday.
    i'll keep you all posted.

    Interesting application. Please do keep updating, I'm skeptical because it's only your first day though.

    Yeah I have the same problem, I'm a walking furnace. Here is my concern, if you aren't sweating how does the body lower its body heat then if its uncontrollably high during the day?

    Happened to someone in my family, they eventually got the shots, and boom, no more problems. Been over 6 months.

    oh i still sweat but just not in my armpits where for me it tends starts first.
    but the thing with me is that i could just be sitting right in front of you talking and start sweating.
    it's not that i'm hot or anything it's that my brain is sending signals to my sweat glands and telling them to start sweating for some uncontrollable reason.

    riiiight riiiight riiiight
    just going by your possible location you must be one of those ass faggots in the spandex who speed walks his way over to ballys in downtown crossing just to make it in time for the brazilian booty blast cardio classes.
    eat a dick

    i doubt this is the reason, at least in my case.
    regardless of where i am in bf%, i'll still sweat.
    during the seasons i'll fluctuate in bf%.
    being from the northeast i'll bulk during the fall/winter and spring/summer i'll cut down to approx 14-17 bf% and i'll still sweat.
    so there is not much difference in the capacity im sweating.

    it's not just my armpits but it's my head too.
    as i said the seasons somewhat make a difference but not by much.
    i use to live in florida for a couple of years and there really was no difference to the sweating or how much sweating i was doing than from boston.

    i've seen guys much smaller than me with the same condition.
    also there's this chick at my job who's in pretty nice shape and runs the boston marathons and she sweat like crazy.
    so it's not so much of a weight issue from what i see.

    hyperhydrosis is just one of those fucked up conditions.
    my dermo recommended that i go see an endocrinologist before she determines i have this condition.
    after going through thorough and vigorous tests with endocrinology, all of my levels came back normal so they cleared me.

    i asked my dermo that she look into "sympathectomy", which is a surgical procedure to remove your sympathetic ganglion (sp), which is some nerve system of some kind that triggers sweating.
    she's trying to steer me away from doing this because it involves collapsing of the lungs in order to remove this nerve.
    but the success rate is high and the results are pretty awesome.
    so instead she recommended that i take the botox shots to see if it helps with the sweating of the armpits at least.
    i never knew how lethal botox really was regardless of it fda approval.

    like i've stated earlier i haven't noticed sweating at all in my armpits.
    but i'm still seriously thinking about getting the sympathectomy because the sweating sucks.
    i sweat in my sleep, i'll sweat when i'm nervous, i can start sweating at any moment just by doing nothing.
    especially for someone like me who works in a corporate environment sweating can be your worst enemy so i'll keep a mini fan around me in my office.
    though i get cold from it, it does help the drying of the sweat.

    but as for the 14th, not a drop of sweat and this is with no deodorant.
    i'm anxious to see how things will go once i hit the weights back up today, shoulders and abs.

    will keep you posted.

    some of you have been bleeding at the vaginas for me to render our some footage of me deadlfting because you simply can't fathom the idea of seeing someone doing something far more powerful than you.
    it's quite sad honestly, the world is filled with many wonders.

    but yea, catch me wasting my time proving myself to a bunch of lame fucks on some instanets forum?? nga plz.
    believe what you want, i really just don't give a shit to tell you the truth. :dunno:

    i don't ever post and will never post pics of myself online.
    however, the only pic you'll ever find of me on ot was during the post your pic pink shirt guy thread.
    so have at it if you will and look there, i believe it's archived.

    no I train around people much stronger than me every day, doesn't bother me at all.

    you lying out of your ass and failing to produce any proof is amusing though. At least this time you don't even have some bullshit excuse, just LOL I HAVE NOTHING TO PROVE TO YOU FAGGOTS HURRRRRRRRR
