I have recently noticed that I have been sweating more than normal. Armpits, feet and crotch. The last of those is the most bothersome, because it stinks! I live in a cold climate, so I'm not really sure why I'm sweating (I'm never hot).
Recent changes: I have been eating a lot less, losing weight.
I stopped taking the pill after taking it for about 3 years.
I have been drinking a lot of water... but I have done that before, and never sweat like this.
I am 70, presumably in good health, active, fit & I eat sensibly. I have become more aware of sweating when, ie vacuuming, carrying out menial tasks. I assumed I had long past the so called 'change'. I take 75 mg levothyroxine for under active thyroid with annual blood tests to check whether dosage should be changed.
What could cause this problem pleas?
