Feeling fine in-between sets but feeling the delayed onset muscle soreness the next morning is perfectly normal. I don't think you need to worry that you're not gaining just because you don't instantly feel sore. Not sweating is something... (more)

I usually try to do the sauna about 15-20 mins per day, and I seem to sweat way more than the average person there, which began when I started drinking more water and eating more hydrating fruit (oranges etc). The last few days though, talking to... (more)

If you're sweating a lot you should be aware of what's happening to your electrolytes, in particular the sodium-potassium balance. Generally speaking, you need salt and not just water. It's possible to kill yourself (that actually happens) by... (more)

One of the reasons for night sweats, nightmares, etc. is low blood sugar episodes while you sleep (diabetics will have this). If you've got a blood glucose monitor, maybe check it at night/in the morning. Lowest blood sugar time is supposed to... (more)

It's common. The heat led to the sweating which greatly increased what is called your insensible water/fluid loss. It is not a problem at all, unless you are not drinking enough to cover your increased fluid needs. And over an extended time, you'd... (more)

Don't get me wrong, it's a great relief to not be a sweaty mess half the time, like I was before, but now I don't seem to be producing a drop of sweat, even when exercising? Is this something to be concerned about?

Inability to sweat can be a sign of hypothyroidism, but hopefully that is not what your sweatlessness (is that even a word?) is about.

I've had night sweats, too! Could a cortisol issue be the culprit? I need to look into thyroid, as well.

Maybe you need more salt, potassium, and other stuff you lose through sweat. Maybe your body is conserving these things and will sweat more if you have more water and electrolytes... Ever track your nutrients?

I've had similar experiences. I would attribute it to either a change in lean body mass, i.e. more muscle tissue that could produce more heat when active or a change in brown adipose tissue which could be responsible for non-shivering heat... (more)
