Even Tennis Player Nadal Has Too Much Sweat
The New York Times reported yesterday on the Australian open tennis tournament. Here. Rafa Nadal has had a virus and it has been affecting his play and his sweating. He keeps having to change his shirt for a clean dry one because of the excess sweat. See a quote here
“Clearly, this is not a time to be feeling sluggish: Nadal is four victories from becoming the first man since Laver in 1969 to hold the four tennis trophies that matter most.
“When I play and I’m anxious, I’m a player who sweats more,” he said. “But even when there’s no anxiety here, I’m sweating like crazy. And what concerns me most is that I’m getting tired during practice.”
Now for the reassuring news. Despite all the shirt-changing, Nadal has yet to drop a set.
The interesting thing in the quote is that anxiety is not part of the problem in his case. This is not true for me and many other hyperhidrosis sufferers. In fact anxiety is one if the main factors for many people who suffer from too much sweat. Anxiety and worry will make your existing sweat problem worse for most people.
Nadal’s problem is obviously much more to do with the virus that he had. This is why it is so important to find out exactly what is causing you to sweat too much. Obviously the top tennis player in the world will have his own doctors and advisers on hand to help him. He is like a well oiled tennis machine ready to do battle in his next game.
So if you have too much sweat you should find out exactly what is causing it. Then you can start treating it appropriately. There are many treatments from medication to dietary advise and help.
