Why do I stay so hot? When I eat, walk, sit, I start sweating! If I get anxious, upset of just plain angry, I sweat like I have a river running out of every pore in my body! I am 47, have been having symptoms like pre-menopause since 36,and I am ready for this mess to end!! Help!
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Hot flashes and other symptoms that you describe could suggest chances of menopausal onset, and you should consider going ahead with getting thorough hormonal workup done to look for the underlying cause. Other causes leading to hyperhidrosis/excessive sweating could be thyroid hormone abnormality, skin conditions etc. Visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further evaluation and assistance.
