It could be the Fibromyalgia. Fibro causes problems with your hypothalamus gland which controls your body temperature, sleep and a range of other things. I have had the symptoms you are describing. Your body could also be trying to fight an infection, so I would check your temp. when these symptoms occur for fever. Your symptoms don't sound hormone-related to me, although hormone problems make Fibromyalgia symptoms worse. Also make sure it's not an adverse reaction to Cymbalta or something with your Diabetes.
Response from Prof. Nicolson: Temperature regulation problems, thyroid gland disorders (often thyroiditis), that cause cold sweats and profuse sweating at night (so called night sweats) are often signs of a chronic infection(s). This is one of the most common signs/symptoms found in CFS patients who are infected with chronic cell wall deficient bacteria (Mycoplasma, Chlamydia, Borrelia, etc.) and viruses (HHV6, CMV, etc.). In our experience effective anti-microbial treatment will reduce or even eliminate such problems but treatment is long-term. Short term treatments usually offered patients do little to dent these chronic infections.
I did not have cold sweats, but with my fibro i am more sensitive to the cold weather and always seem to feel cold. I just cant get warm enough. I have had my thyroid checked several times, and it seems to come back normal. But my doctor told me that being sensitive to the cold, or being cold a lot is a sign of fibro.
Mine is sweating when I should be cold It's 23 Degrees and I can't Stop sweating so bad.. I looks like I just got out of the shower.
I hjaven't been officially diagnosed with fibro- but it has been suggested- that and chronic fatigue- but i do suffr from Chrohn's which has similar symptoms- so it's hard to know if i have fibro or not- i don't have any of the trigger or tender points- so i have my doubt- I have said for 30 years now that my 'temperature regulation valve is broken'. I'll be sweating one minute, and freezing the next- but I'm not running a fever- When i get run down, which doesn't take much at all- I'll sweat more- and it's a cold clammy sweating- stressful situations seem to make it worse- These symptoms can go along with anxiety- but i tend to think there is something not working right in the body's systems to cause us to be both heat and cold intolerant- there is no 'perfect temperature' for me- I'm either too cold, or too hot- and suffer terrible night sweats to boot- but not constantly- it comes and goes- I'll go to be freezing cold- can't get warm- feet ice cold- hands too- then wake up around 4 am and be soaked head to foot- literally- sweating all over- it's miserable-
