Generally starts by feeling a little light headed and then boom, sweat pours from every glands almost immediately and for 5-10 minutes. After it is over I feel fine. I can soak through all the clothes i have on in just a matter of minutes. Im 40 in decent health and a 5 yr gastric bypass patient.

Thanks for writing your query.

Your symptoms might have developed due to decreased blood supply to the brain as a result of low blood pressure.

After reading your post, I would like to suggest that you get following investigations done :-
1. Blood pressure and pulse rate monitoring.
2. Hemoglobin levels.
3. Serum electrolytes.
4. Fasting blood sugar levels.
5. ECG(Electrocardiography).
6. CT/MRI of head and neck.
7. Thyroid profile.

You should take care of your diet. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables.
Drink lots of pure water daily.

You should get yourself clinically examined and investigated.
Your medical management can be planned according to clinical evaluation and according to the reports of the above mentioned investigations.

I hope this is helpful to you.
