On the other side, did I write this before? I worked with an nurse who had the surgery and was very happy she had it done. Her husband was especially pleased with the outcome.

Yeah, I think I'd have to talk with people who have had it done...With all that I've read, it seems the outcome isn't guaranteed to solve the problem, and, can sometimes actually make the condition worse. However, I don't know anyone else with hyperhidrosis so I have no one to talk to about it. In addition, I think the best doctors for it are in California and I surely can't afford a trip to Cali!

Usually it's more of an annoyance than anything since I'm currently a stay at home mom and don't interact with other people too often, but, it really gets in the way of knitting and I have to basically rule knitting out over the summer months. Either that or move to Antarctica or

Oh I already thought it was only me who had sweaty hands,... It's bad in the summer, in the train, everywhere it's hot,... I start sweating so easily and feel embarassed to knit then, since the yarn is wet, the needles are wet, and nothing will slip easily. I found that cotton works though, to some extent. It seems to absorb the humidity and doesn't squeak.
Squeaking yarn is embarassing in the train or other public spaces.
The ways of Yarn are inscrutable.
