Excessive sweating even while doing light work, body always warm. How to reduce sweating?

I m a 66 year old male. I have always had heavy face sweating even when doing very light work outside in the winter and in the summer will sweat just sitting outside. I am warm when others are just right or even cool. I m tired of always sweating like I ve been working out when actually doing very little. I am not over weight. Any suggestions?

Hi there ~

The symptoms that you mention are very typical of a thyroid condition called hypothyroidism. I believe that you need to visit with a doctor who will take and H&P and do a complete physical examination and refer you to a lab which can do the needed blood studies and imaging studies to find out what is really wrong. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!
