There is a condition called hyperhydrosis. ( I could be wrong on the spelling though)

I'm sure if you google that, it could give you some more info.

May also be an anxiety thing... when I go through extremely stressful time with work/school my feet sweat!

With hyperhydrosis I believe the symptoms occur all over your body, primarily underarms. It seems odd that hyperhydrosis would remain specific to the hands but I'm sure its possible that there is some sort of condition out there which causes sweaty hands.

Some medications cause out of control sweating. Have you been taking any medications since the symptoms started?

Talk to a doctor for sure.

Nope, no meds. I sweat on my back, hands, feet, and underarms, it's just the most unconfortable on my hands cause I'll shake peoples hands and they'll be all like eww your hands are sweaty!

You could get botox shot to stop the sweating, but you'll just endup sweating somewhere else.
This is what they originally use botox for cosmetically.

I had a friend back in school with this condition, caused her a lot of grief.

Here's a link with some reasonable background information:

There's all kinds of quack-cures being advertised out there, so be careful following any of them. I would say, see your doctor, and they can advise on real treatments that actually help and aren't scams.
