Re: [IP] Eating and sweating

I also get a runny nose when I eat along with the sweating. Unfortunately I
do not have any suggestions about what to do about this. Just wanted to let
you know that others feel what you are going through! :O)

Yesterday is in the past...
Tomorrow has yet to come...
Today is a gift, that is why we call it...THE PRESENT!
