Symptoms ??

This July I started radiation for prostate cancer but had to suspend treatment while I had open heart surgery in August. After 4 weeks I was very depressed and had many anxiety attacks mostly in the mornigs. My question is are sweaty hands and feet a symptom of anxiety disorder? I wake each morning at 3:55 am with sweaty and clamy
hands. This has been going on  for 5 weeks. The doc started me on  Zoloft 100mg but can't stand side effects so will try something different after I taper off. Also will try Xanax for some relief. Thankss for your help.
