User :   thyroid tested and are normal
Doctor :   ok, when was the test done ?
User :   there was one done in dec or jan then again in early march
Doctor :   ok, that would suffice. then the disturbance in the sex hormones is the cause which could be considered now

User :   ok
User :   the medications will help with the sweating in different areas.
