Suddenly had dripping sweat, rapid heartbeat, immediate coldness in body, lack of sleep. What could this be?

My fiance was fine this morning. We got to work & he broke out into a dripping sweat & got sick, with rapid heartbeat . Then got real cold , but I assumed that part was because he was completely wet with sweat. He came home & got sick a few more times. He suffers from insomnia & didn t get any sleep last night. Is it possible he is just exhausted or fatigued?

Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your description of the problem and I feel the experience your friend had was due to tiredness or over exaustion.

When we are over exausted, our body is so tired, it just needs rest and proper rest, nothing short will be accepted. Such a sleep should be totally unaware of whatever happens around. Sweat must have happened due to climatic change or using of a blanket unknowingly. Sweat broke his sleep suddenly and he felt panic triggering palpitation and further sweat. Then calming down took place and he felt cold due to the sweat present. Hopefully that is the clear explanation.

Therefore nothing to worry. May be, if you want to be doubly sure, do visit a general physician.

Hope I could clarify your doubts. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
