I had surgical menopause at age 40..and am no 53..so it is not a menopausal thing...But the last two months..I seem to break out in a sweat at the drop of a hat! It takes a while for me to stop sweating as well..Simple things like doing dishes can start it....Sometimes it kicks up when the AC hasn't kicked in for a while and the house temp has risen a bit. I seem to recall reading that sweating is just one more FMS symptom....Hoping to hear from others that have this symptom . And I WILL be talking to the doctor about this...check up coming in a couple weeks. TIA for any info/advice you have!
