Sudden excessive sweating

I was sleeping and for an unknown reason woke up and it felt hit in the room. I changed positions and got the covers off me and thought that's all it was but I just kept getting more and more sweaty. My fan was on too and the sweat kept coming. My heart rate was normal, temp was normal. I mention that b/c I have had panic attacks but with those my heartrate is high and not so here. After a few min of this I started to THEN worry. Lasted about 7 min.
I'm only 34 so I don't think it's a menopausal or heart thing. Anyone know??

Thanks. Well according to blood tests I had a few months ago my thyroid is ok. I would think they'd tell me if I was anemic. Fir meds I'm on low doses of Prozac, Xanax, seroquel, and inderal. They've never done this b4. Im kinda freaked right now in fact. Any other ideas?

Again I've sweated through my clothes, but it's in the morning, early or late, and I'm still in bed. I'll feel hot, but it escalates to drenched in a few seconds. I have had this with anxiety attacks but I don't think that's what this is. I've had it twice so far and I'm 34.

I've noticed it's 4 days before my period, or day 28. The last time it happened I don't recall the period-relationship.

-could this be something else? When I feel myself getting hotter, I do get a bit anxious b/c I don't know what's happening and cannot control it.

-Another thread says people have gotten this from hormone problems. But i've heard from my own gyno that hormone tests are unreliable b/c hormones change so much within less than a day.

I'm really scared (as I usually am when I have some weird symptom and cannot control it). Any ideas? I'm going to my doc on Friday. I have been stressed out and am really broke, but I've been stressed before and this sweating thing never happened.
